Ignite your tastebuds

Chinese New Year is fast approaching, this year from 7th-13th February people will be celebrating. 2016 is the Year of the Monkey.

In line with Chinese New Year, I’ve been trying out some Firecracker dishes with Tilda¬†Firecracker Limited Edition Rice to ignite the tastebuds.

Here is a really easy dish I have called “Firecracker Prawns”.

You will need:

  • Tilda firecracker rice
  • Chilli infused oil
  • Sweet chilli sauce
  • King prawns
  • Shitake mushrooms
  • Red pepper
  • Yellow pepper



Approximately £13.00


2 people

Time required:

Preparation and cooking – 20 minutes total


1. Chop the shitake mushrooms and peppers


2. Toss in a little chilli oil


3. Add the prawns keep on a low heat

4. Add a little chill sauce and continue to toss

5. Open a small slit in the rice pouches and microwave on full power (2 mins per pouch)


6. Serve the prawns and vegetables on a bed of firecracker rice


7. Add further chilli sauce to taste
