Story Behind this Recipe
I bought a lot of Brussels sprouts, so I tried stir-frying them with various ingredients. While garlic certainly goes well with Brussels sprouts, I discovered that seafood goes better with Brussels sprouts than meat. This stir-fry is cooked quickly over high heat, so it's perfect for when you're in a hurry.
Cook quickly over high heat. Do not overcook. If fresh prawns are not available, use frozen ones or a frozen seafood mix. Adjust the amount of pepper to suit your taste (I like it with plenty of pepper).
