On a recent culinary adventure, I found myself in the heart of Mexico City, savoring the vibrant flavors of local cuisine. As I journeyed onwards to Beijing, my palate was awakened by the aromatic spices and textures of Chinese dishes. It was this gastronomic journey that inspired me to create a fusion dish that marries these two distinct cuisines. Thus, the “Corn on the Prawn Picnic” recipe was born.
This delightful Mexican Chinese fusion recipe serves four and is perfect for those who enjoy seafood and aren’t allergic to it. However, if you’re following a vegan diet or have gluten intolerance, this may not be suitable for you.
Our star ingredients are 500g of succulent prawns and 2 cups of sweet corn kernels – a classic combination in prawn and sweet corn recipes. The prawns are stir-fried in olive oil with finely chopped onions and minced garlic, releasing an irresistible aroma that sets the tone for this spicy prawn dish. The addition of diced bell peppers and jalapenos brings a pop of color and heat, while cumin powder, paprika powder, black pepper powder add depth to our Asian inspired seafood recipe.
To make this easy seafood dinner idea come alive, start by peeling and deveining your prawns before coating them in a spice mix – an essential step in any spicy prawn and corn skillet recipe. Once your prawns turn pink on both sides in your skillet (a sign they’re perfectly cooked), set them aside while you sauté your veggies in olive oil until they’re tender-crisp – just how we like it in our homemade prawn and sweet corn stir fry! Now comes the magic: combine soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil over low heat before pouring it over your veggies – a technique often used when cooking with soy sauce and oyster sauce. Return your prawns to the skillet, stir gently, and voila! Your Corn on the Prawn Picnic is ready to be served.
And there you have it – a unique fusion cuisine where Mexican meets Chinese in a delightful dance of flavors and textures. This Corn on the Prawn Picnic recipe is not just an easy prawn and corn stir fry, but a celebration of multicultural meals that’s perfect for picnics or any day you want to spice things up in your kitchen. So why not give this healthy seafood stir fry recipe a try? You might just find it making its way into your list of best seafood recipes for picnics!
