King prawns with broccoli in sweet and sour sauce: recipe


I love preparing recipes inspired by Asian gastronomy with ingredients that can be used perfectly by blending them together and preparing them in a very natural and quite simple way. It is with this dynamic that today I propose my recipe for prawns with broccoli in sweet and sour sauce that we will prepare at home.

The sweet and sour sauce can be prepared in several ways and probably every cook and cook will have their special touch to prepare their own. Personally, I usually make a sweet and sour sauce that I love to use when looking to serve an oriental-inspired dish.

In the first stage of this recipe we will concentrate on preparing the sweet and sour sauce. For this we are going to use a pot in which we will heat the chicken broth. Before it starts to boil, we add the tablespoons of ketchup, honey and soy sauce. We dissolve the cornstarch in a little water and integrate it with the rest of the ingredients. We stir for a couple of minutes until the sauce has a slightly thick consistency. We remove from the fire and reserve.

Now we will heat a pot with water and a teaspoon of salt. We wash the broccoli and cut it in such a way as to preserve its flowers. When the water is boiling, we add the broccoli and leave it over high heat for about eight minutes. Remove from the fire, drain all the water and pass the broccoli under the stream of cold water to stop cooking. We drain it well and reserve.

Now we are going to cut the head of the prawns and peel them. Heat the olive oil in a wok and grill the prawns for about five minutes, stirring regularly. When they are pink, add the broccoli and the previously prepared sweet and sour sauce. Sauté everything over medium heat and serve.

With what to accompany the prawns with broccoli in sweet and sour sauce
