With Chinese New Year around the corner, many people are including prawns in their menu because the word sounds like “ha” in Cantonese and some other Chinese dialects, symbolizing laughter (笑 “哈哈”) and happiness. This is an easy and quick recipe for prawns stir-fried in XO Sauce.

XO Sauce is a seafood sauce popular in Cantonese cuisine, and it is a sauce I recently started to use and really like. It’s slightly pricey because of the presence of dried scallops. To me, it is a god-sent sauce for stir frying, especially for a lazy cook like me. Foods coated in XO sauce just taste good. With the yummy sauce, you don’t need a lot of other marinades and condiments to season the food.
