Stir-fry French beans with Prawns

Inspiration - I googled and apparently french beans is the aristrocrat of all beans. Hmm, I wonder what that means but anyway, it is such a versatile veggie and can be cooked in a lot of different versions. This recipe here is just a simple one which you can cook up in less than 5 mins.

Simple ingredients :-

1) A handful of french beans, cleaned and cut.
2) Some prawns
3) some dried prawns
4) Garlic, Seasoning - soy sauce, salt and oyster sauce.

Simple steps -

1) First, stir-fry the garlic, then add the dried shrimp and stir-fry till fragrant. Add the shrimp and stir-fry for just less than 1 minute. Quickly, turn up the fire and put in the french beans. Give a quick toss and add a little water if too dry.

2) Stir-fry all ingredients for less than 2 mins and Voila! Ready to eat! Yum Yum!

Verdict - Actually, for this dish my Hubby-D was the chef. He came back from work and nicely volunteered cos I accidently cut my finger while opening a can. He is so sweet and he did such an excellent job. He turned up the fire to stir-fry (like the chefs in the restaurants) and the whole kitchen was so fragant with the smell of this dish and smoky too :).
