Sweet & Sour King Prawns

A tasty (and of course healthy) prawn stir fry perfect for lunch or dinner. It's full of fresh vegetables and easily adaptable for those who don't eat fish.


  • 3 tbsp groundnut oil

  • 8 large king prawns, de-veined, shelled (leaving tails on), heads removed

  • 1 tbsp grated fresh root ginger

  • 1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped

  • ½ onion, chopped

  • 50g canned pineapple, drained and chopped

  • 200ml pineapple juice

  • 1 small handful chopped red and yellow pepper*

  • 1 small handful fresh beansprouts

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • ½ lime, juice only

  • honey, to taste

  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced

  • steamed jasmine rice, to serve


  • Heat a wok until smoking, then add two tablespoons of the groundnut oil. Add the prawns and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, or until the prawns are pink and just cooked through. Remove from the wok and set aside.

  • Heat the remaining oil in the wok. Add the ginger and chilli and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the onions and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until softened.

  • Meanwhile, place the pineapple and the pineapple juice into a food processor and blend to a smooth purée. Pour the purée into the wok and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Add the chopped peppers and beansprouts and stir well. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper, lime juice and honey.

  • Return the prawns to the wok and stir through the sauce. Sprinkle over the spring onions.

  • To serve, place equal amounts of the stir fry onto two plates and serve with steamed jasmine rice.
