Singapore Noodles With Prawns

noodlesThis is one of my favourite recipes for when you need something really quick and, as a bonus, it’s healthy too.

What You Need

  • Prawns or shrimp (frozen or fresh is fine, already cooked is good for speed)
  • Fine egg noodles
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red chilli
  • 2 tbsp dry sherry or rice wine
  • 2 eggs
  • Mange tout
  • Frozen peas
  • Frozen sweetcorn
  • 2 tbsp Light Soy
  • 2 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese Five Spice

What You Do

  • Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions
  • Beat the eggs and fry in a wok until scrambled and cooked
  • Add the onions and chilli and fry until softened and aromatic
  • Add the sherry & light soy and fry for a few minutes until the alcohol has evaporated
  • Add the prawns, noodles, vegetables, five spice and sesame oil and a little water if necessary.
  • Heat through and serve

Tips & Tags

*Healthy Halo*

  • Sesame oil is one of my favourite all time ingredients.  We’re big fans of Chinese food and adding just a few drops is a surefire way to add an Asian element to your cooking.
  • Swap prawns for chicken breast, sliced beef or Quorn.
  • Don’t be afraid to try big Asian flavours when weaning – Caterpillar ate mild curries and stry-fry from early on – but be careful about using soy sauce as it contains a lot of salt.
