Prawns In A Hot Chilli And Lemongrass Sauce On Noodles

If you like your food spicy then this is the dish for you! Full of bold and complex flavours, this packs a punch!

I love making my own Eastern-inspired sauces from scratch. It genuinely doesn’t take as long as you’d think, and I like to know what exactly is in the sauce – no nasty e-numbers or preservatives that can be found in some off-the-shelf versions.

Fragrant, delicious and filling.

    How totally delicious! This makes me think of my fave Wagamama dish – the firecracker prawns on rice, would go just as well with noodles. I love chilli and I’m saving this to make asap. Yum 🙂
