Large Frying Pan
Garlic Press



Pour the water for the rice (see pantry for amount) into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.

Stir in the rice and 0.25 tsp salt and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid.

Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).


Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan on medium heat (no oil).

Once hot, add the cashews and dry-fry, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted, 2-3 mins. TIP: Watch them like a hawk as they can burn easily. Once toasted, remove from the pan and set aside for now.

Slice the sugar snap peas in half lengthways.


Drain the prawns.

Return the (now empty) frying to pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.

Once hot, add the prawns. Season with salt and pepper and stir-fry for 4-5 mins. Once cooked, remove the pan from the heat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. The prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.


While the prawns fry, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Trim and thinly slice the spring onion.

Add the garlic, sugar snaps, ginger puree and half of the spring onion to the prawns and fry until fragrant, 1 min.


Stir the Szechuan sauce, soy sauce and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount) into the pan. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer until thickened, 3-4 mins.

Stir the honey and toasted cashews into the sauce.

Taste and season with salt and pepper. Add a splash of water if it's a little too thick.

Fluff up the rice with a fork.


Share the rice between your serving bowls.

Spoon over the Kung Pao style prawns.

Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and remaining spring onion.
