  1. Heat half the oil in a wok, add the prawns, season and cook, pushing them around the pan until a delicate pink colour, about 2-3 mins, remove and put to one side. Mix together the sweet chilli sauce ingredients and put to one side.
  2. Add the remaining oil to the pan then add the shallots, ginger and garlic and stir fry for a couple of mins then add the tomatoes and half the coriander and continue to stir fry for a further minute or two.
  3. Push the mixture to one side and on a high heat add the sauce and let it bubble a little then tip the prawns back into the pan and stir so everything gets coated. Transfer to serving dishes and top with remaining coriander. Serve with rice or noodles.
