Prawn Stir-Fry with Rice Noodles

 

Prawn Stir-Fry with Rice Noodles by food blogger Honest Mum

Updated post.

We love a stir-fry in this house, how could we not? Quick and easy to rustle up, bursting with colour, flavour and punch: stir-frys, we salute you!

My eldest son, Oliver isn’t a chilli fan so we make a separate batch for him, but my youngest Alexander loves a bit of kick to his food and gobbles it up, chilli and all! I do use less soy sauce when making it for them too so, just adding a dash at the end for serving so the salt content isn’t high.

We ease off the wheat most of the time here so love the light rice noodles make an ideal base or I’ll often enjoy a stir fry with a big bowl of stir-fried veg if I’m not that hungry!

Filling and flavoursome, stir-fry’s are fabulous all year round.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp mild olive oil/ sunflower oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled, finely chopped
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1 courgette, sliced
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 small piece fresh ginger, peeled, grated or finely chopped
  • 150g/3½ oz raw king prawns (grey), heads and shells removed, de-veined
  • 250g/9 oz rice noodles
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar, or mirin
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp dark soy sauce

To serve:

  • fresh coriander, chopped
  • Handful of toasted sesame seeds
  • Dash of soya sauce and sesame oil to taste

Method:

Heat the oil in a wok on a high heat. Add the garlic, onion, ginger, chilli, spring onions and courgettes. Fry until golden brown then add the prawns.

In another pan, boil the rice noodles for 1-2 minutes until soft. Drain and leave covered to keep warm.

In a bowl, mix together the sesame oil, soy sauce and mirin. Pour over the prawns and vegetables, covering then and fry for 2 minutes.

Place the noodles into a bowl and cover with the prawn mixture.

Sprinkle the coriander and sesame seeds and add more soya sauce and sesame oil to taste.

    I love the look of this dish, and agree that you can’t beat a stir fry for a quick, easy but really tasty meal. I think I’ll have to give this one a go! Am pleased to link up to #TastyTuesdays this week, even if it is an embarrassing dud of a recipe that I’m sharing!

    I’m such a fan of quick meals at the moment – eating once Baby H is in bed has it’s disadvantages. But this is quick and yummy, so win win 🙂

    YUM! looks delicious. I would need to find a substitute for the soy sauce as my 9 month eats with us now and I have to watch the salt levels. Any ideas? Thanks for hosting 🙂

    I love prawns but we don’t have them very much as Jon’s not a fan. I guess the beauty of stir fry is that it’s best made in smaller batches, so maybe I’ll make prawn for me and chicken for him.
