Appetizer Platter of Seasoned Prawns
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Sub chicken pieces or firm tofu...the flavors are dynamite no matter what you use!
16-20 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
In a bowl, combine shrimp, sugar, plum sauce, (if you do not have any plum sauce simply blend 2 tablespoons of any good jam or marmalade with 1 teaspoon soy sauce!) pepper, garlic, ginger and honey. Toss and marinate for 3-5 minutes or more. Heat oil in a wok on high heat until it is just about to smoke. Add the shrimp and marinade and stir-fry for 3 minutes, allowing all to be seared in the hot oil, browned and plump. Line a serving plate with lettuce leaves and transfer the shrimp to the lettuce. Top with red pepper strips and cilantro or parsley leaves and garnish with slices of tomato and cucumber.
