    A refreshing prawn/shrimp stir fry from Australian BH&G Diabetic Living. They direct to leave the tails on but I always remove them, personal taste.

      I love the spices, colors and textures of this dish, which I made for Photo Tag. I served it with spicy Thai rice. I did a little converting amounts. 1 kg prawns is 2.2 lbs, 250 g green beans is approximately 1/2 pound, and as best as I could figure out the red capsicum is a red bell pepper. All tasted wonderful and worked prepared as a half recipe. My only wish is that there were a bit of a sauce with it.
