Foodie Fridays - Stir-fried Prawns with French Beans

I love prawns, they are so tasty and sweet and if I can get them fresh I can whip up a simple dish with minimum seasoning.  Recently I cooked this stir-fried prawns with french beans on one of the weekday and everyone said its delicious.  Its fast & easy to prepare, dinner was ready in 30mins.

You can cook this as one of the dish for the meal but we eat it alone with rice, our one dish dinner for that night.
