  • 200g raw peeled tiger prawns
  • 1 bunch salad onions
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp clear honey
  • 1 tsp Lee Kum Kee Chilli Garlic Sauce
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • Egg fried rice, to serve


  1. Defrost the prawns if necessary. Cut the salad onions into 3cm lengths. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, honey and chilli garlic sauce. Stir in 3 tbsp water; set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the garlic and chilli and cook for 1 minute over a low heat until they start to get some colour. Add the salad onions and cook for 2 minutes over a medium heat until starting to soften. Stir in the prepared soy sauce mixture. Add the prawns and cook for about 2 minutes on each side until pink, opaque and cooked through.

  3. In a small bowl, mix the cornflour with 4 tbsp cold water. Add this to the pan and mix well. Stir for a few seconds until the liquid in the pan turns thick and sticks to the prawns. Serve straight away with egg fried rice.
