  1. Heat the oil in a large wok. Add the red onion and vegetables, then stir-fry for 2 mins until starting to wilt. Throw in the prawns, garlic and fish sauce and cook everything together for 3-4 mins until the prawns change colour and cook through. (If using cooked prawns, you just need to stir them into the rice to warm through before serving.)
  2. Scatter in the rice, then carry on cooking for 3-4 mins until the rice is piping hot. Serve scattered with coriander and pass round the soy sauce bottle for those who want it.

Very tasty. Used basmati rice, left out the broccoli, used fine french beans instead and some ginger...absolutely lovely.

What a simple, tasty recipe. I loved it and the second portion is waiting in the fridge for my boyfriend, if he likes it too it'll become a firm favourite!

Really good midweek supper, I added some ginger, sweet chilli sauce & the juice of 1 lime. We loved it & a great way to use up leftover rice.

This is a great, easy recipe, thanks.

I altered a little by adding two cloves of crushed garlic , half a teaspoon of shredded fresh ginger, two deseeded and chopped green chillies,and the white of three small spring onions at the first ( fry onions) stage. Also, instead of adding plain rice I made some egg fried rice and added that at the rice stage. Its really tasty, has a little kick and a different texture due to the egg fried rice.
