Given the vast array of citrus varieties we have available at PCC, you may certainly substitute any other type you would like in this dish. Try it with blood oranges for glorious color or pink grapefruit for a tangy twist!


Cooking sauce


In a bowl, combine sherry, arrowroot powder, sesame oil, soy sauce and ground pepper. Add the prawns and stir to coat.

Heat a wok or wide frying pan over medium high heat. When pan is hot, add 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the whole peppers and cook, stirring, until peppers begin to char. Do not let them burn. Add the prawns and stir fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until prawns are done through. Remove the prawns and chile peppers from the pan.

Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to pan and increase heat to high. When oil begins to heat, add garlic and ginger. Cook for a few seconds. Stir in the pea pods, bell pepper strips and the green onions. Cook for 1 minute. Add the prawns back to the pan and pour in the cooking sauce. Simmer until the sauce bubbles and thickens slightly, about 2 minutes Fold in the tangerine segments and serve over steamed rice.
