Asparagus and Prawn Stir-fry

Asparagus and Prawn Stir-fry
1 tbsp vegetable/peanut oil
2 cloves garlic, sliced/chopped
200g prawns, peeled, deveined and tails intact
2 bundles asparagus, woody ends snapped off, halved crossways
2-3 bird's eye chillies, sliced
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp palm sugar (or to taste)
1 tbsp Thai sweet chilli sauce
3 tbsp water
Heat oil in a wok on high heat. Add the garlic, followed by the prawns. Let the prawns cook on one side, then flip them over to cook the other side. When the prawns are almost cooked, remove and transfer them to a plate and leave the oil in the wok. Next, add the asparagus to the wok and fry for 30 seconds, then push them aside. Add the chillies and pour the sauce ingredients down the side of the wok into the centre and bring to a boil. Toss the prawns in with the asparagus and sauce, and stir-fry briefly until everything is well coated, and sauce is slightly reduced. Turn off the heat and transfer to a serving plate. Serve with steamed jasmine rice.

I need a side dish tonight and I have both asparagus (that I really need to use soon) and frozen shrimp. I feel like I am meant to cook this tonight! It'll be my first time combining fish sauce and oyster sauce. Can't wait to try!

I made it tonight and it was a big hit! I love using palm sugar (I bought a big bag when I made BBQ lemongrass chicken). My kids ate lots of asparagus too! Thanks for the recipe!
