Spicy Prawn Cooking Method
You can use any type of prawns for this dish however according to your choice you will need to prepare and cook suitably. If you are using frozen allow time for them to defrost before starting to cook. Also remember that you will need to cook raw prawns for a little bit longer. Those already cooked just need heating – an extended period in the pan can make them dry and tough.
Cook the noodles according to the pack instructions, drain quickly (to stop cooking process) and set aside.
While the noodles are cooking, heat the sesame oil in a wok. Add the garlic, ginger and chilli and fry for 2 minutes. Then add the stir-fry vegetables and cook on a high heat until softened a little, but still crisp.
Turn down the heat and add the soy sauce and prawns and cook for a few minutes until turning pink or become fully heated through. Add the noodles, lime juice and chopped coriander to the pan and stir through to combine.
Serve immediately in warm bowls.
