Sweet and Spicy Prawns Stir Fry

I have some frozen prawns but I haven’t think of what to do with it. I was thinking of the usual recipes which are “halabos”, “sinigang” or “ginataan” but no! I want something easy yet different this time and here it is ….Sweet & Spicy Prawns Stir Fry. Coming across this dish from a popular site I did think twice as it would mean eating something that is too spicy might be incredibly uncomfortable. But yes, I can always adjust the amount of chili from hot to mild and the sweet taste…ohh i just love it! And so I did try the dish I must say, it was a trial without regrets. It tastes real nice and goes well with either fried rice or steamed rice.
