- 1 tbsp, vegetable oil
- 200g, beansprouts

- 10-12 king prawns
- ½ tsp salt, or to taste
- 1-2 tbsp soy sauce, or to taste
- 1 tsp sesame oil

- Ensure you have taken off the shell off your king prawns and that they are cooked. If you have bought them raw, take off its shell, boil some water in a pan and boil the king prawns for about two minutes until pink. TIP: If the king prawns are grey in colour they are raw, if they are pink they have been pre-cooked. Also make sure you lay the prawn flat and make a cut down its side and take out its intestines. You will see this as a black line running down the side of the king prawn.
