While you have set the prawns aside for 20mins take a small dish to prepare the sauce,add all your ingreadients and beat with a fork so that all the flavours blend.

Step 4: Prawns (first Fry)

First add the sesame oil and vegetable oil to a wok and heat..then add the prawns and stir fry till its almost but not fully done, Do this in batches of 2 because its much easier, then remove the prawns from the oil, drain the oil so that one tablespoon quantity oil remains.

Step 5: Prawns (second Fry)

Now add the ginger, garlic and chilli and fry for about 25s, then add the Coriander (or parsley) and almost done prawns, Fry for about 1-2 mins so that the garlic is golden and the prawns are 100% done

Does not look to bad but I would recommend some oyster sauce in the mix. For cooking the shrimp and for the dipping sauce. And I would also Finely Grate the ginger instead. I keep mine in the freezer till I need it.
This would go great with some sticky rice and maybe a veg stir fry also.
