A delicious Chinese “Fakeaway” – Nutritious, simple, and it doesn’t disappoint in fiery heat.

Ingredients How to make


  • 100 g Raw King prawns defrosted
  • ¼ tsp Whole black peppercorns
  • ¼ tsp Dried chilli flakes
  • ½ tsp Cumin & Coriander mixture
  • 5 g Garlic (finely chopped)
  • 5 g Ginger (finely chopped)
  • 30 g Red onion (sliced)
  • 30 g Green pepper (sliced)
  • 30 g Red pepper (sliced)
  • 3 g Coriander (separate the leaves from the stalks)
  • 1 ½ tsp Tamari
  • ¾ tsp Mirin
  • 60 ml Bone broth

How to make

  • Marinate the prawns using tamari, mirin, black pepper, cumin, ground coriander, chilli flakes, garlic, ginger and coriander stalks for at least 20 minutes.
  • Heat a deep frying pan or wok on a medium heat and add the bone broth.
  • Add the onions and peppers to the pan and allow to cook for a few minutes.
  • Add the marinated prawns to the pan and cook for around 10 minutes, until the prawns are cooked through. If there is still liquid in the pan, remove the prawns and vegetables and allow the liquid to evaporate, leaving a thick sauce to drizzle over the prawns
