stir fry broccoli with prawns

have broccoli will stir fry...with prawns. :-)

it's been a while since i last posted anything food related here. don't get me wrong, i have been cooking AND baking, but the stuff that i cook lately have been pretty basic stuff. something, i think, you guys have done before. so, basically they were not blogworthy *pandai je aku, kan? kecik hati makanan tu seme temahhh...* it's just that, it's after raya, and i dunno...

but, i think i'm getting my mojo back. :-p hence the broccoli and prawns...i know, i guys prolly have it every other day, but i don't, so it's a big deal, okay? okay. *insert insane laughter here*

i took this recipe from here. you know, sometimes you need to see what others have in store for you. sure you have your recipe books but sometimes, these food blogs are a-may-zing!! taste wise, i like has the chinese thing going on, you know? so, ready?

let's go!!

what you'll need:
450-500g broccoli, cut into florets and blanched (oopsie! i didn't blanch them)
200g prawns, shelled and tail intact
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tsp minced ginger, i sliced mine in thin strips
2 tsp peanut oil, i used EVOO
sea salt to taste, i used MALDON (love love love!!!)

for the sauce:
1 tbs oyster sauce
1 ½ cornflour
10 tbsp chicken stock or water, i used water

the how to:
1)  heat oil in wok, cook the garlic, remove the garlic when they are fragrant and golden in colour.

2)  turn the heat on high, cook the prawns briefly and toss in the ginger, garlic and broccoli. stir fry for about 2 minutes.

3)  add in the sauce, bring to a quick boil and season with the sea salt.

4)  the sauce should be thick and the broccoli cooked but still firm. serve immediately.

easy? you betcha!!

recipe source: thank you!!!
