Stir-Fried Prawns - Hong Kong Style

Stir-Fried Prawns - Hong Kong Style created by Karen Elizabeth

From the *Carnival Creations* cookbook by Cyrus Marfatia (Exec Chef of Carnival Cruise Lines) comes this recipe described in the intro as a "Stir-fry favorite that requires just a bit of chopping plus quick wok cooking to provide a complete meal". (Time was estimated & does not include the 20 min to marinate the prawns. The wok cooking time is very fast & I allowed 20 min for ingredient prep) *Enjoy* !

    A very good stir-fry, its all in the prep work. Get the shrimp into the marinade, use the marinading time to prepare your veggies, and supper is on the table before you know it. I had rice in the freezer which I used to make Recipe #333786, which made a lovely accompaniment to this meal. i did change my vegetables a little, to accommodate what I had in the fridge, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly, thank you twissis, we enjoyed this very much.
