Spot Prawn, Mango and Basil Stir Fry

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 7 mins

From Caper's Community Market, via the Vancouver Sun. Spot Prawns are native to the BC coast and are DELICIOUS! They are meaty, yet tender compared to tiger prawns etc. This sounds very good.

unfortunately, I did not have any basil so I made this without. Having said that, this was quite good. My mango was a bit unripe which left it a little sour. This was unintentional but the flavor was quite good with a little sourness. THis was a healthy but also tasted decadent at the same time. Try it out.....
