You often see San Choy Bow however rarely is it made with prawns instead of meat or chicken.

As I don't eat red meat often, and as I eat a lot of chicken, I decided to try this with prawns instead, and the result was a very delicious meal, even though it is quite a fiddly recipe.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 2 - 3

Ingredients
Iceberg lettuce
500 g raw prawns, peeled and deveined
Bit of oil
½ tsp sesame oil
1 spring onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, brushed
1 tsp ginger
60 g water chestnuts, drained and chopped
½ to 1 tbsp red chili, chopped
90 g cooked white rice
45 g bean sprouts
About 20 g coriander, chopped
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp lime juice
About 25 ml Hoisin sauce

Method
  • Wash the lettuce and separate the leaves. Shake off excess water and drain on a paper towel.

  • If the prawns are large, as mine were, cut them into smaller pieces.

  • Heat a wok over a high heat and add the oil and sesame oil, and then the spring onion, garlic and ginger.

  • Cook for about 30 seconds, and then add the prawn meat, water chestnuts, sprouts, and chili.


  • Add some salt and black pepper and stir fry for 2 minutes - do not overcook or prawns will be rubbery.

  • Add the cooked rice, and coriander and stir until combined.

  • Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce and lime juice, and then take off the heat.

  • Put the lettuce on each plate, sprinkle each one with the Hoisin sauce.
  • Spread this hoisin sauce all over the lettuce leaf


  • Spoon the prawn mixture onto each lettuce leaf.

  • Roll up and eat!

  • I served this with my potato parcels.
