Spicy Prawn Stir Fry

I was looking for a recipe to use up half a head of cauliflower that would actually make it taste of something. I went rummaging in my box of recipes and came up with this. I adapted it a little from the original and made it actually spicy. The original picture seemed to suggest that there would be lots of liquid in the dish at the end but I didn't have much left, it was still very tasty. I served it with rice.

Spray a wok or frying pan with the cooking spray and stir-fry the spring onions, cauliflower, garlic and ginger for 2-3 mins.
