Add the other vegetables and sauté for 3–5 minutes to soften. Move the vegetables to the sides to make room for the prawns.

Cook the prawns in a single layer in the skillet for 2-3 minutes per side (they don't need to be cooked through).

Add the remaining sauce ingredients in order. Stir continually until prawns are cooked and sauce thickens, 10–12 minutes. Increase tapioca flour if the sauce is thin.

Add sea salt, orange zest, ginger, or coconut aminos to taste in the stir fry. Add fresh lime juice if desired.

Prawn stir fried over cooked white or brown rice, zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice or veggie rice. I like prawn stir-fried over coconut aminos-steamed white rice.

I prefer this healthy prawn stir fry fresh, but you may prep it for the next day or two. Keep leftovers in an airtight jar in the fridge for 3 days.
