Delicious & Easy Prawn & Asparagus Stir Fry in 15 Minutes

by

Last  weekend friends came to stay for the weekend and I was making dinner for us all on Saturday night.  I decided I didn’t want to spent too much time in the kitchen but I wanted dinner to have a little bit of a wow factor! This very easy (and delicious) prawn and asparagus stir fry was a real hit and this is how I made it!

It is adapted from an Ocado recipe as their recipe was a little too faffy for me, and I wanted something that would be easy to replicate mid-week too! Don’t be put off by the number of ingredients, it really is very easy!

Meanwhile heat a wok on high and when it’s really hot add in the oil.  Throw in the onion and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add the chilli, garlic and spring onion and stir-fry for a further 4 minutes until the onions have softened. Add the prawns and the asparagus in and stir fry for a further 2 minutes.
