From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com.
2-3 fresh carrots, cut into strips
Wash and scrub the carrots and cut into strips about 2 inches long by 1/4 inch or so. Thinly slice the leek in the same manner. Peel and devein the prawns. In wok or stir fry pan, heat oil. Add carrot slices and leeks. Stir fry 2-3 minutes. Add the prawns or shrimp. Stir and cook about 2 - 3 minutes. If using the fresh prawns, they will turn pink and start to curl. Do not over cook. Add sesame oil, freshly ground pepper, and soy sauce to season. Heat thoroughly. Arrange small wedges of iceberg lettuce on dinner plates, and arrange the stir fried mixture alongside and serve.
