Prepare the sambal sauce by blending the ingredients identified
Heat a wok or large frying pan and add some cooking oil
Fry the blended ingredients on a medium heat and keep stirring for about 10 minutes or until the oil surfaces. The sauce should not be too runny.
Meanwhile prepare the asparagus by snapping off the woody ends and slicing them diagonally across the stalk like in the picture
Wash the prawns and sprinkle some sugar over them, this gives the prawns a bite instead of being soft and soggy
Add the prawns to the sauce and cook until the prawns turn pink
Add the asparagus and stir in and season to taste.
Serve with steamed white rice and a selection of other dishes as part of a family meal
