Stir-fried Asparagus and Prawns

Asparagus is an excellent source of folate, B-group vitamins, vitamins C, E, beta-carotene, iron and calcium.  It has nutrients good for vision and for protecting against cardiovascular disease.  

Asparagus should not be eaten raw.  It is a delicate vegetable which needs only be cooked lightly.  Overcooking or storing them for too long will decrease their nutrients and sweetness.

10 asparagus
200gm prawns
4 button mushrooms
some carrot slices
some spring onion sections
3 slices ginger slices
some potato starch mixture

1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chicken seasoning powder
1/2 tbsp wine

  1. Peel off tough skins from the asparagus and cut each into 2 sections.  Blanch in lightly salted boiling water, then rinse under cold water, drain well.  Cut mushrooms into halves.
  2. Heat some soil and fry onion and ginger until fragrant.  Stir in asparagus, prawns, mushrooms and corrot.  Add a little water and stir briskly.  Add seasonings and lastly thicken with potato starch mixture.
