Prawns In Hoisin Sauce#FishFriday

Hoisin sauce is a sweet n sour Chinese sauce. Though its literal meaning is "seafood", Hoisin sauce does not contain fish.

This goes to our event for Fish Friday Foodies, theme for November is Stir-Fry. Our 
Karen H Kerr, asked us to create a stir-fry featuring seafood. 

1 Cup Prawns - Peeled and de-viened
1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
3-4 Garlic Cloves - Chopped
3 Spring Onions - Chopped
½ Cup French Beans - parboiled
1 Medium Capsicum - Cut in slices
3 Green Chilies - Cut in slices
½ Cup Baby Corn - Cut in slices
2 Teaspoon Hoisin Sauce
1 Teaspoon Hot Chili Sauce
1 Teaspoon Honey
½ Teaspoon Soy Sauce

Heat olive oil in wok. Swirl it around. Add the garlic, green chilies and fry them for half a minute
Add spring onions and capsicum and mix till they are soft. Take it off the pan.
Add the prawns to the pan. Allow to cook from one side then flip it and let it cook from the other side.
Add all the veggies, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, chili sauce and honey to the prawns and mix for about 4 minutes. Adjust salt.
Serve hot with steamed rice, garlic bread, boiled noodles or fried rice. 

My Notes:
Vegetables  like carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, etc can also be used.
