Steamed Brocolli with Stir Fried Prawns...and the time I flew home and cooked for mum.

Oh it's so nice to be home. If you can overlook the 30'C heat that is... But the food more than makes up for that. This is totally going to be a recipe for disaster though... Normally I eat carrot sticks and walk an hour a day. That's NOT happening here. :p oh well.. I guess I'll just worry about those few
More kilos when I get back to the bubble. 

For now, here's a quick dish I threw together for my second night here. It was really nice cooking for mum again. We had a nice little dinner for 2 together last night, and I can't wait to have a lot more. 

Steamed Brocolli with Stir-fried prawns. 

- 1 head of Brocolli
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- soya sauce to taste
- 200g prawns, shelled and cleaned
- 1 tbsp corn flour
- 2 shallots, sliced
- 1 inch ginger, roughly grated
- 1 green chilli, cut lengthways
- 2 tbsp oyster sauce,
- 1 tbsp Thai chilli sauce
- 1 1/2 tsp soya sauce
- salt and pepper
- vegetable oil

+ cut up the Brocolli into florets and toss with 2/3 of the garlic and a drizzle of soya sauce. Arrange on a plate and drizzle a pinch of salt over. Steam for 4-6 munutes ( depending on how tender you'd like your Brocolli to be)

+ toss the prawns in the corn flour and season with salt and pepper. 

+ add 2 tbsp of veggie oil to a wok. Heat till just starting to smoke, then throw in the sliced shallots, ginger, remaining garlic and green chilli. Fry till fragrant. Add sauces and stir till combined. Add prawns, stir fry till just turning pink. You may need to add some water to loosen up the sauce. 

+ when the prawns are cooked, pour the whole lot over your steamed Brocolli. 

+ serve with hot, white rice.
