Gok Wan’s Spicy Stir-Fried Prawns with Cashew Nuts

 Gok Wan's spicy stir-fried prawns with cashew nuts

Another winning recipe from “Gok cooks Chinese”! My kids love stir fries so this was always going to be well received, I served it with “Easy Traditional Noodles“, a great combination!

This is my simplified version of Gok’s recipe, you can view the full version here. The original uses raw prawns but for speed, ease and safety (I’m never sure if I’ve removed the vein properly), I’ve used cooked, peeled prawns. Plus I replaced the vegetables with a ready made bag of stir fry from the supermarket. This makes the whole recipe super easy!
