Magnificent. The prawns didn't know what hit them.

Fab - have cooked it many times. Very quick and easy.
Have added chiili and ginger for a different variety of tastes.
Also chilli flavoured straight to wok noodles work well with this dish.

Deme has a lovey idea of also adding some ginger or chilli. I like the sound of this, i think i would fry thinly sliced ginger and chilli together with the garlic and then flollow the recipe as its written. I also like the idea of adding straight to wok noodles so i will do this and instead of just the soy sauce i will mix the 2 tablespoons of soy as suggested above with 1 tablespoon of chinese 5 spice. Nice and quick but extremly tasty aswell..

Distinctly average stirfry. The only plus points- low fat and healthy. Will not be making this again.

This recipe is delicious, far more so than I had expected. It sounds as though it should be quite bland but it turned out to be very tasty and great with noodles. I followed the recipe amounts but used prawns which were already cooked and normal spinach instead of baby (as that's all I had). I also ground some chilli flakes over the prawns as they were cooking and this gave the meal a nice kick. Will definitely make this again - fast, simple and yummy!

I cooked this for supper & found it to be very tasty and quick, but next time I may add either a small amount of chilli or ginger to it just for a change. Would reccomend it though. Also very good for those of us trying to loose weight

For a fairly simple dish this was really nice. You can get away with only 2 tablespoons of oil - less fat. I added some straight to wok noodles for a complete meal.
