Drunken Prawns


Recipe for Drunken Prawns

2 tablespoons sugar
half cup fresh lime juice
half cup beer (preferably lager)
2 tablespoons olive oil
half yellow or white onion sliced thin
1 red pepper sliced thin
quarter cup bamboo shoots finely diced
1 carrot peeled and julienned
10-12 prawns shelled and deveined
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro
salt to taste
serves 2

In a small saucepan bring lime juice, beer and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer until reduced by half. Set aside.

Heat oil in a large nonstick frying pan. Add onions, red pepper, bamboo shoots and carrots. Stir vegetables continuously, for about 3 minutes, until the carrots start to soften. Add prawns and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until prawns start to turn opaque.

Add as much or as little of the lime juice and beer mixture as you want, depending on how saucy you would like it. Season with salt and top with cilantro.

Serve over brown rice.
