Stir Fried Prawns and Sugar Snap Peas

Stir Fried Prawns and Sugar Snap Peas

Some people when they are travelling they usually rely on restaurants, take aways or even street food, it is very seldom that they will cook on their own. The problem is that when you’re out of your own kitchen it is very hard to adjust with the utensils available to you as well as the cooking stove you will be using but me I don’t mind hence I will be cooking where ever I want to enjoy my favourite meal designed for my palate. That does not mean I don’t enjoy restaurants when I travel but sometime I am in dire need of cooking for my own pleasure.

This recipe is one example of what I prepared when I was in a holiday in Europe in my sisters place. If you think that it is not a challenge as I am cooking in place where there is a proper kitchen, well let me tell you that it is a big challenge as me and my sister are total opposites they don’t cook that much at their place and if they do most of it are ready to eat meals. On my first attempt I did made some stir fried noodles like this and did not find any ingredients that I am used to hence it was a failure. I also made some Filipino Style Chicken barbecue and it was a partial failure, I can’t control the flames on their barbecue burner correctly so some were burnt badly. Finally I made something simple so at this instance I made a Stir Fried Prawns and Sugar Snap Peas and at last it was a success.

Ingredients

400g prawns, shelled
200g sugar snap peas
1 large red capsicum, chopped
1 large white onion, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup white wine

  5. Season with fish sauce and freshly ground black pepper, turn heat off then serve.

    [laughing] I’ll probably still eat out at restaurants when travelling, but find this such a simple and flavourful meal at home also! Just another idea for the forthcoming weekend ~ but think I’ll try the verjuice I just got from our Maggie Beer’s Kitchen Shop instead of the white wine :) ! Ideal recipe for that!!

    I hear you about cooking in someone else’s kitchen. Even in the best equipped kitchen, it just not the same. You are welcome to make this shrimp dish for me in my kitchen any time!

    kitchen is one place but taking a picture at different place can be hard in terms of light etc. You did a great job making this delicious meal and taking picture of it at your sister’s. :) Never tried white wine and fish sauce to season. Def give this a try!

  6. What gorgeous photos Raymund of such a stunning bowl of stir-fry. You are a brave and persistent soul to have continued to try to cook in her kitchen after the two “fails”. Good for you…and you certainly did succeed with this dish!

  7. I agree with Geni 100%!
