Stir-Fried Bok Choy with Jumbo Prawns
Health Highlights


250 gm Prawns, raw (fresh or frozen and thawed)
1 tbsp Sherry, sweet
1 tbsp Cornstarch (divided)
2 tbsp Canola oil
1 tbsp minced Ginger root (grated)
1/2 cup Chicken broth (stock), low sodium
1/2 tsp Granulated sugar
1/2 tbsp Soy sauce, low sodium
227 gm Bok choy (cut into 1 inch pieces)
1 cup Cremini (Italian) mushroom
1/4 tsp Black pepper (fresh ground)


In large bowl, toss prawns with cooking sherry and ½ Tbsp (15 mL) cornstarch.

In wok or large saucepan, heat canola oil over medium high heat. Add ginger and stir fry for about 1 minute. Add prawns and stir fry until pink. Remove from pan and keep warm.

In small bowl or cup, mix together chicken broth, sugar, soy sauce and remaining cornstarch.

If needed, add a little more canola oil to the pan, add the bok choy and mushrooms. Stir fry for about 3 minutes. Return prawns and add chicken broth mixture. Serve hot from pan over steamed rice or noodles, if desired. * If using dried whole mushrooms (available affordably in the ethic aisle), place in a bowl and cover with boiling hot water and allow to stand for at least 20 minutes. When rehydrated, chop in halves or quarters.
