Asparagus with prawns

Ok, more vegetable dishes coming up! haha. I’ve got like a million other posts to blog about so everything’s gonna be short and sweet.
I’ve got another version of this veggie but it’s baby asparagus rather than asparagus. 
Asparagus with prawns
  • 2 small bunches of asparagus
  • 4 prawns, shelled (retain the tail), deveined 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • oil 
  • salt 
  • water

Marinate prawns with:
  • a bit of hua diao jiu
  • dash of ground black/ white pepper 

  • fish sauce to taste

  1. Trim the stem end of the asparagus. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the tough fibers on the stem – how much to remove depends on how old your asparagus is.
  2. Rinse the asparagus and slice it diagonally. 
  3. Place a bit of oil and salt in some water and bring to a boil. Parboil the asparagus for 2 min till almost cooked.
  4. Drain and set aside.
  5. Heat oil in wok and fry garlic till fragrant.
  6. Add marinated prawns and fry till 70% cooked. 
  7. Add the parboiled asparagus and some water and simmer for a short while till prawns and asparagus are fully cooked.
  8. Add fish sauce to taste.
  9. Dish and serve.
For tot’s consumption:
You can cook the asparagus for a longer time to soften it further if your tot is not so good at chewing crunchy veggies. 🙂 Cut into bite-size before serving.
