Thai Prawn Noodle Bowl

I wanted some fine rice noodles for this dish and our local Morrisons doesn’t stock them. I’m lucky if they stock the thicker rice noodles which I actually prefer to the shop-bought egg noodles. Luckily, our local deli sells them, at a great price too. The downside? The packet was massive and I had to fight to split the pack, resulting in a kitchen decorated with very small pieces of noodle. I kept finding them for days.

Trim some spring onions and deseed & thinly slice a red pepper.

Pop the noodles in a bowl and cover with boiling water, leave to stand until cooked.

Stir fry some peanuts, preferably unsalted but I used salted, in a little oil. Remove from the pan.

Add the sliced onions and pepper and stir fry for a couple of minutes. Then add a finely sliced chilli and a crushed lemongrass stalk, half a tin of coconut milk, a little veg stock & a big dash of fish sauce and bring to the boil.

Stir in some seasoning and cooked prawns, adding the noodles.

Sprinkle the peanuts on top & serve with some coriander if you remember. Regular visitors to my blog will know that I am really good at forgetting this stage.


This was dinner… 20th November 2013.
