I found this and thought it sounded really good. I haven't tried it (intend to soon) but wanted to share it anyway. From a supermarket give away.

Mmmm these were wonderful! Because I was cooking for myself I used the full amount of sauce with half the prawns, but then when returning the prawns to the wok also included some bok choy and chinese noodles (which I'd cooked) and it all went wonderfully with the sauce.
