Mmmm these were wonderful! Because I was cooking for myself I used the full amount of sauce with half the prawns, but then when returning the prawns to the wok also included some bok choy and chinese noodles (which I'd cooked) and it all went wonderfully with the sauce.

I tried this recipe and it was really tasty although I used cider vinegar and omitted the black bean sauce. I made iranian basmati rice to accompagne it and they both tasted really nice.

Great taste. Easy recipe to alter according to what was on hand.
Omitted the bean paste, added more chilli and used cider vinegar.
Matt made it for dinner last night & if I hadn't seen him put the tomato sauce in the pan I never would've guessed it was in there. I think he used less than stated due to others reviews.
Thanks for sharing, mate :)

Great recipe! I make shrimp stock with the shells for cooking the jasmine rice. I also use Toban Djan instead of Black Bean Paste

The flavor was really nice. Not as spicy as I thought it was going to be. Hubby tought it needed some veggies, so I will add them next time. Thanks for the recipe.

I thought this was just okay. The dish was quick to make, but lacked something in the flavor of the sauce. I was also hoping the sauce would be hotter than it was and thought it was a little too ketchup-y with not enough chili flavor and heat.

This was amazing, it was just the right amount of heat and sweetness. I served it over jasmine rice, and it was wonderful. thankyou for your recipe.

I used all my ginger yesterday so I didn't use it in this recipe. I couldn't find malt vinegar so I used white vinegar. When I asked the ketchup to DH, he asked me for what. When I told him it was for the shrimps, he was skeptical. Cause he doesn't like ketchup. But he liked this dish. We all loved it. We almost fight for the last one LOL Thanks Jewelies.
