    Ingredients

    • 1 tbsp cornflour pinch of cayenne pepper
    • 225g tiger prawns, uncooked
    • 2 tbsp soy sauce spray oil for frying
    • 25g unsalted cashew nuts
    • 120g shiitake mushrooms, halved
    • 200g broccoli, chopped into florets
    • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
    • 1 small piece of ginger root, finely chopped
    • 2 spring onions, diagonally sliced
    • 4 tbsp rice wine

    Method

    • Mix the cornflour and cayenne in a bowl, add the prawns and coat thoroughly, then mix in the soy sauce and leave in a cool place for about 30 minutes.

    • Spray some oil into a wok and place over a high heat, add the cashews and stir-fry for 30 seconds or until golden, then remove them to a plate.

    • Next add the mushrooms and stir fry for 1-2mins until golden. Add the prawns and stir-fry for about 1-2 minutes, until they turn pink. Add the remaining ingredients and stir fry for another minute.

    • Return the nuts to the pan, turn the heat down to medium, add the rice wine and a little water, then put a lid on the pan and cook for a further minute. Serve with glass noodles or boiled rice.

    Top tip for making Stir-fry prawns with mushroom and broccoli

    Be careful when cooking your prawns - they tend to lose their flavour if they're overcooked. Remove them from the pan when they've turned pink
