I love a Chinese takeaway and this is the nearest thing to it but all slimming world friendly. I know prawns are expensive but I picked up two bags of king prawns at Aldi for £2.49 each and it fed four of us so no more expensive than chicken or beef really.
I bought the yellow bean sauce from the Chinese supermarket I go to (Wai Yee Hong in Bristol) you only need a small amount so its worth buying and keeps for ages in the fridge. Wai Yee Hong also do mail order which I sometimes do as I live in Wales and they do HUGE sizes of soy sauce and other items very reasonably priced so if you like to cook Chinese food worth an order.
This recipe is based on the one in Gok Wans book 'Gok cooks Chinese' with some adaptations to make it slimming world friendly. Its really quick and simple to make. I served it with egg fried rice and stir fried vegetables.
Prawns in yellow bean sauce
- 500g king prawns
- 2 tbsp light soy sauce
- 2 tbsp yellow bean sauce
- 50ml water
- 1 onion (cut into chunks)
- 2 green peppers (sliced)
- 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
- low calorie spray oil.
Place a wok or large frying pan over a high heat and spray with oil. Add the onion and peppers and stir fry for a few minutes until onion is soft. Add the garlic and stir fry for another minute then add the soy sauce, water and yellow bean sauce and bring to the boil then add the prawns and heat through for two minutes. Serve immediately.
Serves 4 at 1/2 syn per portion.
