Asparagus with prawns

Ok, more vegetable dishes coming up! haha. I've got like a million other posts to blog about so everything's gonna be short and sweet.

I've got another version of this veggie but it's baby asparagus rather than asparagus. 

Asparagus with prawns



Ingredients:
  • 2 small bunches of asparagus
  • 4 prawns, shelled (retain the tail), deveined 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • oil 
  • salt 
  • water


Marinate prawns with:
  • a bit of hua diao jiu
  • dash of ground black/ white pepper 


Seasoning: 
  • fish sauce to taste


Method:
  1. Trim the stem end of the asparagus. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the tough fibers on the stem - how much to remove depends on how old your asparagus is.
  2. Rinse the asparagus and slice it diagonally. 
  3. Place a bit of oil and salt in some water and bring to a boil. Parboil the asparagus for 2 min till almost cooked.
  4. Drain and set aside.
  5. Heat oil in wok and fry garlic till fragrant.
  6. Add marinated prawns and fry till 70% cooked. 
  7. Add the parboiled asparagus and some water and simmer for a short while till prawns and asparagus are fully cooked.
  8. Add fish sauce to taste.
  9. Dish and serve.
For tot's consumption:
You can cook the asparagus for a longer time to soften it further if your tot is not so good at chewing crunchy veggies. :) Cut into bite-size before serving.
