  1. Slice the pepper in half. Remove the seeds and pith, then thinly slice the pepper into strips. Slice the chilli in half, remove the seeds with the back of your knife then finely dice the flesh. Thinly slice the spring onions.

  2. Heat a little oil in a wok. When hot, stir fry the prawns for one minute then remove from the pan. Add the pepper and chilli to the pan, cook for 2 minutes then add the onion and sugar snap peas. Cook for 1 more minute.
