  1. Heat a large, heavy frying pan over a medium heat. Add 1 tbsp oil and cook the sprouts for 8-10 mins, stirring occasionally, until tender and charred in places but still bright green. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. Add 1 tbsp oil to the pan and add the garlic. Cook for 1-2 mins, stirring frequently, until fragrant. Add the spring onions and prawns and fry for 3 mins or until the prawns are opaque throughout. Transfer to the plate with the sprouts.
  3. Heat the rice to pack instructions. Add the glaze ingredients to the pan and increase the heat to high. Cook for 3-4 mins until thickened. Add the rice to the pan along with the prawn and sprout mixture and heat until piping hot, stirring to coat in the glaze. Serve with the lime wedges, peanuts and coriander to garnish.
