Preparation instructions:

a. Prepare vegetables before beginning cooking instructions
b. Prepare the stock
c. Prepare cornflour mixture
d. Ensure you have taken off the shell off your king prawns. If you have bought them raw, take off its shell, boil some water in a pan and boil the king prawns for about two minutes until pink.
TIP: If the king prawns are grey in colour they are raw, if they are pink they have been pre-cooked.
Also make sure you lay the prawn flat and make a cut down its side and take out its intestines. You will see this as a black line running down the side of the king prawn.

Cooking instructions:

  1. Heat oil in a wok, on high heat until hot.

  2. Add garlic, green pepper, carrots, mushrooms and bamboo shoots and water chestnuts and fry for one minute

  3. Add king prawns and beansprouts and fry for two minutes

  4. Pour in one ladle of chicken stock and leave for two minutes or until it is starting to boil.

  5. Then gradually add the 2 tablespoons of cornflour mixture. Once this mixture is well incorporated the sauce should thicken. See our techniques section for more details on this.

  6. Lastly add in salt, soya sauce and oyster sauce and serve.

Extra notes: Serve with boiled rice or fried noodles.
