Chinese-style Sate Prawns



1.Combine sauce, garlic, curry powder and five spice in a bowl. Add prawns; toss to combine. Heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add half the oil; swirl to coat surface. Stir-fry onion for 2 minutes or until soft. Transfer prawn mixture to a heatproof plate.
2.Add remaining oil to wok; swirl to coat surface. Add prawn mixture; stir-fry for 2 minutes or until prawns change in colour.
3.Return onion to wok. Add snow peas and 1 tablespoon water; stir-fry for 2 minutes or until prawns are cooked and vegetables are just tender. Spoon rice onto serving plates. Top with prawn mixture and bean sprouts. Serve with lemon wedges.

Use 400g sliced chicken breast or thigh fillets instead of prawns. Cooking time will vary. Vegetarian: Swap prawns for 200g firm tofu, cut into 2cm pieces. Add 1/3 cup roasted unsalted peanuts just before serving. You’ll need to cook 1 cup rice.
