A friend gave me some Vietnamese mint from her garden so I sought out a recipe.

Serves 2
Cook time:

  • 4 cm ginger, peeled and grated
  • 12 large raw prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 1 large spring onion, cut into 3 cm pieces
  • 10 Vietnamese mint leaves
  • 1 small chili, diced

    For the sauce
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp fish stock, or water
  • 1 lime, juice only
  • dash sesame oil


  1. Heat a wok over high heat and add the oil. Add the garlic, ginger and prawns and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the spring onion, Vietnamese mint and chili. Stir fry until the prawns are pink and cooked. Place aside.
  2. Add the sauce ingredients to the wok and simmer until reduced. Add the sesame oil and pour over the prawns. Serve immediately.
