This is what I love cooking on my days off. It is delicious and takes less than 10 minutes to prepare, leaving me more time to catch up with all my reading. Kailan is in season now and there is no better time to enjoy this delicious vegetable. If you prefer a naughtier version of this check out Stir fried kailan with crispy pork.
P.S For my friend K who thinks cooking Thai food takes up too much time, this one is for you!
10 - 12 prawns, peeled and butterflied
4 stalks of kailan (Chinese broccoli), cut into manageable pieces
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 bird chilies, chopped
1 red chili, sliced
1/2 bunch of Thai basil or holy basil, picked
dash of fish sauce
dash of oyster sauce
dash of light soy
1/2 tbs of sugar
Saute the chopped ingredients with a little oil before adding the prawns, fry on high heat for 30 seconds.
Add kailan and the rest of the chilies and continue to cook for a minute. Add seasonings.
Serve immediately as part of a Thai meal with plenty of steamed rice or.....
