Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 pound prawns or large shrimp -- shelled & deveined*
1 clove garlic -- crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger -- finely ground
2 teaspoons dry sherry -- or rice wine
2 Thai chiles -- seeded & chopped
1 serrano or jalapeno pepper -- seeded & chopped
1 tablespoon fermented black beans -- soaked
1 teaspoon chinese chili paste -- or more to taste
2 teaspoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons peanut oil -- or canola oil
Green onion tops -- for garnish

Place the prawns in a bowl and mix in the garlic and the salt. Add the ginger and sherry, mix well, and allow to marinate while you prepare the rest of the recipe.

Place the chiles in a bowl. Rinse the black beans and drain, then crush or chop them finely and place in the bowl with the chiles. Add the chile paste and hoisin sauce. Set aside.

Next, pour the oil into a heated wok. Stir-fry the chile mixture for 2 minutes, then move it to the side of the wok and add the prawns. Fry the prawns over high heat until they turn pink, about 2 minutes. Move the prawns to one side and add a little more oil, about half a tablespoon. Return the chile-black bean mixture to the oil and stir-fry for 30 seconds, then mix the prawns into the sauce and fry for a few seconds until coated with the black bean mixture. Garnish with green onion tops and serve at once.
