OK this maybe served as an appetizer or as a side dish, anyway you want. but its guaranteed Yummy! i Love prawns..

Step 1: Ingredients

FOR THE PRAWNS - 
      500g of medium raw prawns peeled.
      1tbsp Sesame oil
      5 tbsp Vegetable oil


      2 cloves of garlic peeled and finely chopped
      1 inch piece ginger peeled and chopped
      1 green chilli de-seeded and chopped 
      3 stems fresh coriander, leaves and stems chopped
(i couldn't find any at the time, its for flavor and can be substituted with parsley)


FOR CHINESE DIPPING SAUCE - 
              3 tbsp Dark soy sauce
              3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
(if you cant find it skip it)
              1 tbsp sugar
              1 tsp chilli powder
              2 tbsp vegetable oil
              2 spring onions chopped with leaves

Step 2: Prawns (getting Ready)

First clean the prawns and remove the black vein along the back of the prawn with a sharp knife then add salt to the Prawns and set aside for 20mins,then pat dry and get ready for frying.

Step 3: The Sauce

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   

Step 6: Serve Immediately

Now line up a plate with these prawns, keep the dish of dipping sauce and start selfishly grabbing for those yummy bite's , I didn't spend time decorating i just grabbed the first plate and dish and stacked them but you can be creative with it, post pictures in the comments with how your's came out...

    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.
