This fresh, light dish comes together in just 15 minutes. The light soy sauce and honey give it a rich Asian flavor, and the mixture of vegetables stay nice and crisp, to be the perfect compliment to the prawns.
I love Asian inspired food. When I was growing up my family used to eat at a restaurant called Wok Right Inn. We loved it, and became fast friends with the owners. They invited us back into the kitchen to show us the way they prepared our favorite dishes. I was only 9 or 10 but I still remember how fast everything cooked up.
I loved all the fresh veggies that were thrown into the wok, with their special sauce, and within a few minutes you get a masterpiece of color and flavor.

I love prawns in Asian food because they cook up quick so your veggies stay crisp, but if you don’t like prawns, can’t eat them because of an allergy, or just prefer something different, chicken works great in this dish, or leave it out and go with a vegetarian option!
This is so simple (Eazy Peazy is my name for a reason!), but will have you coming back for more!
Let’s take a minute to talk about the Spiralizer! I love mine. I just bought it off Amazon, and it took me a few tries to get it down. It basically takes your vegetables (Let’s go with zucchini because it is my favorite thing to spiralize) and turns it into ribbons, or noodles. The one I bought came with 3 different blades, so you can get different options. But I love it. I was able to quickly cut my zucchini. It was the perfect size to get cooked but still retain some crispiness! Yum. Luckily, if you don’t have a spiralizer, you can achieve a similar thing by chopping into matchsticks, or using a julienne slicer or mandolin.
