Kung Pao is one of my favourite dishes and I love to make this with prawns. It is salty and slightly sweet and has a little kick to it. I make this with stir fried peppers and cashew nuts.

  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 green pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tbpsn size fresh ginger
  • 2 tbpsn light soy sauce
  • 2 tspn fish sauce
  • 1 tbpsn red wine vinegar
  • 75g cashew nuts
  • 2 red chillies
  • Sunflower oil
  • Fresh coriander
  • 2 spring onions

Directions

  • 1Heat 1 tbpsn sunflower oil in a large frying pan/ wok. Once hot add the onions, garlic and peppers. Stir fry for around 5 minutes.
