Tri-color Wishful Prawns

Hello, I sincerely hope you all had a nice holiday with your loved ones. The year 2010 was a busy and eventful one for me. Many things happened--some good and some not so well. Anyway, isn't what life is all about? With a positive outlook and faith that all bad things will come to an end--I shall celebrate this day with a simple dish using some of my favorite ingredients. To start off the New Year with good tidings and blessing, I've decided to post a few dishes with inspirational wordings.
8 whole prawns, shelled intact and deveined
1 cup baby spinach
6-8 dried shitake mushrooms, soaked with water
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup canned kidney beans
1 pip garlic, minced
2 slices ginger, minced
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 Tbsp. oil
salt and pepper
1. Pat prawns dried and season with a dash of pepper and salt. Squeeze out most of the water from the mushrooms and slice into strips.
2. Heat frying pan with oil and fry garlic and ginger until fragrant and not brown. Add in mushrooms and some of the chicken stock and fry until mushrooms has absorbed most of the liquid. Remove and set aside.
3. Reheat pan over medium high and cook shrimps until the shells turn red in color. Add in the corn, kidney beans, spinach and chicken stock. Simmer for about 5 minutes and stir in the mushrooms and prawns to mix. Season with salt and pepper and serve warm.
