Clean prawns by inserting wooden satay stick through back and hooking out intestinal tract.

Heat oil in wok, and fry prawns quickly, being wary of spitting, then drain and set aside.

Drain off all but 1 tbsp oil and reheat. Add garlic, chillies, sauces, stock, salt & sugar, and stir well to mix.

Add cornflour paste, bring to boil, and stir for 1 minute.

Add prawns and spring onions, and toss to coat.
