From Firehouse Food. If you don't like spicy food, you can reduce the amount of chilis and chili oil.

This was great! The only thing I might change next time would be to cut the carrots julienne rather than sliced (I guess I didn't slice then thin enough and they were still a bit too hard). The taste was fabulous and it did go together fairly quickly.

- Cook the rice according to the package directions and keep warm.
- Heat the vegetable oil over high heat in a wok or large, deep sided skillet. Add the prawns, garlic, and chiles; stir fry for 2 minutes. Stir in the chili oil, soy sauce, sugar, and vinegar. Add the peanuts, carrot, and celery. Stir to combine and reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 3 minutes.
