Prawns is one of our favourites in my house. We love prawns, any way they are cooked, there would usually be no leftovers, just like this dish that I've cooked for dinner a couple of weeks ago. This is a simple, quick dish, and really delicious eaten with white rice.
Stir-Fry Prawns with Ginger, Green Onions and Wine is one of my family's favourites. The kids would finish most of the prawns, leaving the ginger and green onions behind, I don't mind, I love ginger and green onions, so I would finish it all up, including the pieces of garlic! I like using ginger and green onions in most of my stir-fry dishes. Firstly, they give a really aromatic and delicious tastes to dishes, secondly, I love to eat the pieces of ginger and green onions which has absorbed the taste of the seasoning, and thirdly, I've harvested a big bunch of fresh green onions from my potted garden. :o)
Try out this simple dish, your family would love it, especially the kids! You may use less ginger if you prefer.
