TAKES 30 分

サーブ 2

150g basmati rice, washed well

1 オリーブオイル大さじ

1 tbsp butter

1 small red chilli, deseeded and chopped

1cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp black peppercorns, coarsely ground

2 pak choi, sliced

1 tsp oyster sauce

1 tsp light soy sauce

1 tsp dark soy sauce

1 tsp caster sugar

250g jumbo king prawns, 皮をむいた

4 spring onions, finely sliced, plus extra to serve

  • Start by cooking the rice. Add it to a large pan of salted boiling water and cook for 10-12 分, or until tender. Once cooked, drain, rinse with boiling water and set aside.
  • Once the rice is cooked, start the prawns. In a large wok, heat the oil and butter over a high heat. Add the chilli, ginger, garlic and pepper. Sauté for 1-2 minutes until the pepper is fragrant and the garlic is starting to turn golden.
  • Add the pak choi and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until it has wilted. Add the oyster sauce, both soy sauces, caster sugar and 1 tablespoon of water, followed by the prawns and spring onions. Stir-fry over a high heat for 5 minutes until the prawns have just turned pink and are well coated in sauce and pepper. Taste for seasoning, adding a splash more soy if it needs it.
  • Serve immediately on a bed of rice with a scattering of sliced spring onion.
