Stir Fry Celery With Sea Prawns

Something simple and delicious like this stir fry celery with sea prawns.  A good combination of taste and texture.  The celery is crunchy and sweet and the sea prawns has the sea scent and is springy and this can be served as a side dish.  For me, I can just chomp them down all by myself.....:p and leave nothing for the Wild Boar.  Just kidding, good things are to be shared , right?  And the generous garlic and chilli flakes adds flavor to the dish...yummy good !   As you can see, it is without any gravy.  Just add a few tablespoons of water and close wok with the cover for a few minutes so as to soften the celery and not to overcook them or it will lose its crunch.  Love the freshness of the prawns too ! mmmmm I want to cook this simple and yet delicious dish for the coming meals. 

Stir Fry Celery With Sea Prawns  - adapted from WB's Kitchen

12 pieces of sea prawns- remove shell , devein and season with salt and pepper
3 stalks of celery - cut into half and remove string - slice slanting
