  1. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan and stir-fry the prawns on a high heat for 30 secs until they start to take on a little colour. Tip in the ginger, bean sprouts and half of the spring onions and stir-fry for another 30 secs, then turn down the heat and pour in the eggs.

  2. Leave to set for a few seconds, then move the loosely-set egg around the pan with a spatula to scramble. When all of the egg has set, tip in the soy sauce and let it sizzle for a few seconds. Serve sprinkled with the rest of the shredded spring onion and season with more soy sauce to taste.

Quick and easy dinner, yet nice, tasty and healthy. Added a few mushrooms too which worked well.

Fantastic! I also added a clove of garlic and a small chili pepper as someone else suggested and thought it was absolutely delicious.

Loved this, very quick and easy. Great to have scrambled egg to moisten the dish without having to add lashings of greasy stir fry sauce. Used ham and mushrooms instead of prawns. Yum :-)

Made this with grated carrot and red onion (slightly caramelised the onion for 15 minutes first, before adding the carrot) and added a small amount of whole-grain basmati rice to satisfy the boyfriend! Though still high protein and low-ish carb so very happy :)

Lovely dish, makes a lovely light lunch. I added a clove of garlic and a few chillie flakes to give it a bit more oomph and really enjoyed, will definitely make again.

I would peel the Ginger. Also, adding some chopped asparagus with the beansprouts and cooking stage 1 for a little longer works brilliantly.

Hi, I don't understand the ginger part of this dish, do you grate or chop the ginger?
