This week, we fancy some healthy prawn rice noodles!



  • 300g rice noodles, cooked as per package instructions
  • 50ml sesame oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 250g raw prawns, peeled and de-veined
  • 1 red pepper, de-seeded and finely sliced
  • 1 large red chilli, de-seeded and julienned
  • ½ small cucumber, diced
  • 1tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 2tbsp fish sauce
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2tbsp oyster sauce
  • soy sauce, to taste

Combine the sugar, fish sauce, lime juice and oyster sauce in a small mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth and set to one side. Heat the sesame oil in a wok over a medium-high heat and stir-fry the onion and peppers for 2-3 minutes until they start to soften.

Add the chilli and prawns to the wok and continue to stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until the prawns turn pink and tender. Add the prepared sauce and toss well.

Remove from the heat and stir in the cucumber and coriander. Adjust the seasoning with soy sauce if necessary. Arrange the noodles in serving bowls and spoon the prawn stir-fry on top. Serve immediately.
