Looks good – tastes wonderful. Below is the recipe for the Prawns and Courgettes. Anthony Sargeant recommends this light stir fry dish but beware of overcooking the prawns – they will turn rubbery and only need a few minutes in the pan at the very end. The Pak Choi was simply chopped across the leaves with garlic and fresh ginger added with a little soya sauce. (A small yoghurt Raita would be nice on the side)
