    To make couscous: measure couscous into a bowl and mix in pinch of salt. Pour over boiling water - just enough to cover, and let stand for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes when the water is absorbed and the couscous softened, fluff up with a fork and add in the sesame oil and sweet chilli sauce, stirring to coat. Pile into serving bowls.
  • STEP 2
    Meanwhile heat the sesame oil in a wok or pan over a medium-high heat. Add crushed garlic, stirring until fragrant (a couple of minutes and be sure not to brown/burn). Add in the spring onions, mangetout & babycorn if using and stir fry for a minute. Add the spinach and stir to wilt. Pile on top of the couscous.
  • STEP 3
    In the same wok/pan add the prawns and sweet chilli sauce and heat through 2-3 minutes. Pile the prawns on top of the couscous and spinach, drizzling any remaining sauce and serve.
