Do you cook Lettuce? The crunchy Lettuce such as Cos Lettuce and Iceberg Lettuce are great for cooking. I add it to my ‘Prawn & Egg Fried Rice’ and soups. This is a super easy stir-fry dish. The Iceberg Lettuce looks totally wilted, doesn’t it? But it retains crunchiness. Extra crunchy outer leaves are perfect for this dish.


2 Servings


300 to 350g Iceberg Lettuce *5 to 6 large leaves
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 clove Garlic *finely chopped
Fresh OR Dry Chilli as required *finely chopped
150g Prawns
2 to 3 teaspoons Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Potato Starch *mixed with 1 teaspoon Water

  1. 300 to 350g Iceberg Lettuce might look a huge amount, but you need that amount. Wash and tear into 5-6cm pieces.
  2. Prepare all other ingredients ready to use. Cooking doesn’t take long at all.
  3. Heat Olive Oil, Garlic and Chilli in a wok or large frying pan over medium high heat. When aromatic, add Prawns. When Prawns are cooked, again it won’t take long, add Lettuce and stir-fry over high heat.
  4. Add Soy Sauce and stir, sprinkle with the Potato Starch mixture, stirring constantly. And that’s it. *Note: You can season simply with Salt & Black Pepper instead of Soy Sauce.
