Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.

Instructions

Heat oil in a wok over medium–high heat, add garlic and cook for 3 minutes or until golden. Add prawns and cook, stirring, for 4 minutes or until just cooked. Stir in lemon zest and parsley, and serve immediately.
