“This is a great do ahead dish - get everything ready early in the day, refrigerate until 10 minutes before serving. This may be a meal in one or part of a chinese banquet . It is important to do the onions & garlic as suggested in the recipe steps. If you use large prawns keep them separate and half cook them before adding other ingredients - again - do not over cook the shrimp. Cook this right in front of your guests and serve from the wok. The colors from the ingredients are so attractive”
