Stir-fry Marinated Butter Prawns with Peanuts

What do you do when life gets mundane and you feel like an idiot sitting at home? You can either go out shopping (...again!) or you can create a dish with whatever leftovers of raw food in your freezer and then blog it down. So here's my new creation.:

Ingredients (for stir-fry):
  • Shelled prawns
  • 1/2 clove of garlic (chopped) 
  • 1 teaspoon of chopped ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of coarsely chopped onions
  • Spring onions leaves
  • Carrots
  • Salt
  • White pepper
  • Sugar
  • Peanuts (Lightly fried with some oil beforehand) - optional

Ingredients (to marinate the prawns / fish):
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1/s teaspoon of salt
  • A dash of white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of corn flour

  1. Mix marinate ingredients together in a bowl, marinate the shelled prawns one by one and set aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Lightly grease the pan with some cooking oil and heat it up for 1 minute on medium heat before frying the marinated prawn.
  3. Remove the prawns and drain on paper towels.
  4. Use the remaining oil in the pan to lightly saute the chopped garlic, ginger, onions and carrots. Add in salt, pepper and sugar to taste.
  5. Turn down the heat and add in the prawns, spring onion leaves and peanuts. Lighly toss them for 1 minute. Remove and serve warm with rice.
Note: You may replace the prawns with fish fillets (preferable white fish). Repeat step 1 to 5 but do not overcook the fish fillets.

Caution: Eat at your own risk.
