Stir Fried Prawns in Sweet Chilli Sauce with Snow Peas and Carrots

The moment I saw this dish posted by Wiffy at Noobcook, I told myself I must try it.  It's a very appetising dish and goes very well with a bowl of white rice.

Recipe adapted from Wiffy at noobcook

(Serves 2)

- 8 to 10 large prawns (US name: shrimps), shells (leaving only tail end) and veins removed
- 1 tbsp cooking oil
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
- 3 slices ginger, stacked and sliced thinly
- 2 chilli padi (US name: bird’s eye chili), finely sliced (adjust or omit to taste)
- 70g snow peas, strings pulled and ends trimmed
- 1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced
- a handful of coriander (US name: cilantro), finely chopped

(A) sauce (mix well)

1. Heat oil in wok. Stir fry garlic, ginger and chilli until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
2. Add snow peas and carrots, stir-fry for about a minute.
