Ingredients


250g broccoli , thin-stemmed if you like, cut into even-sized florets
2 balls stem ginger , finely chopped, plus 2 tbsp syrup from the jar
3 tbsp low-salt soy sauce
1 garlic clove , crushed
1 red chilli , a little thinly sliced, the rest deseeded and finely chopped

½ tbsp sesame oil
200g raw king prawns
100g beansprouts

sauce, garlic and finely chopped chilli.

Toast the sesame seeds in a dry wok or large frying pan. When they’re nicely
browned, turn up the heat and add the oil, prawns and cooked broccoli. Stir-fry for a
few mins until the prawns turn pink. Pour over the ginger sauce, then tip in the
beansprouts. Cook for 30 seconds, or until the beansprouts are heated thoroughly,
