Recipe: Stir fried prawns with XO sauce

This year, we were also gifted two bottles of XO sauce from The Ritz-Carlton KL's Li Yen Restaurant. XO sauce is a spicy sauce originating from Hong Kong, and is usually made from roughly chopped dried seafood such as scallops, fish and shrimp and cooked with chilli, onions and garlic. It is great with seafood dishes (last year I used it to cook scallops), so this year we paired it with prawns.

Prawns often grace dinner tables during the Chinese New Year period as they symbolise laughter and happiness. This is an easy stir-fry dish you can prepare any time of the year. And you'd need extra rice to eat with the deliciously fragrant XO sauce.
