For the sauce...

Heat the oil in a small AGA Stainless Steel saucepan. Add the ginger and garlic and sauté for 1 minute until softened but not browned. In a bowl combine the remaining ingredients except for the cornstarch mixture. Add them to the saucepan and bring to a simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove the star anise. Whisk in the cornstarch mixture and let boil 1-2 minutes. Taste and add more Tabasco if desired.

For the stir-fry...

Heat an AGA Cast Aluminium saucepan and toast the peppercorns until they are fragrant. Shake the pan constantly. Remove from heat. Place the peppercorns in a spice grinder and grind.

Season the prawns with the peppercorns and salt and set aside. Heat the AGA 30cm Wok over a high heat. When the wok is hot, add the oil. Add the ginger, garlic and onions and stir fry for 1 minutes. Add the prawns, broccoli, peppers, shiitake mushrooms, soy sauce, sherry and chilli paste. Stir fry until the prawns are cooked and vegetables are al dente, about 5 minutes. Add the spring onions and stir fry for 1 minute. Check seasonings and serve at once.
