Salt and Pepper Prawns with Noodles

Fantastic quick meal adapted from a Weight Watchers recipe I found on Pinterest. Zesty, fresh flavours. Prep time: 10 minutes, cooking time even less.

Ingredients
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 400 g prawns, peeled
  • 200 g dry rice noodles such as vermicelli
  • 2 tbs lime or lemon juice
  • 2 tbs sweet chilli sauce OR another marinade of choice
  • 1 tbs fish sauce
  • 1 large carrot, cut into matchsticks or shredded
  • 1 medium cucumber, halved, deseeded, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups cabbage, shredded
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh coriander
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 red chile, finely chopped or substitute with 1/2 tsp chilli flakes. I kept the seeds in as my chiles aren't that hot 
Method
  1. Combine the sea salt, pepper and chilli in a large bowl. Add the prawns and toss to coat. 
  2. Place the noodles in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 5 minutes or until softened. Drain.
  3. Combine the juice, chilli and fish sauces in a large bowl. Add the noodles, carrot, cucumber, cabbage, shallots and half the coriander. Toss gently to combine.
  4. Heat oil in a wok over high heat. Stir-fry the prawns, in batches, for 2–3 minutes or until the prawns change colour and are just cooked through. 
  5. Serve the cooked prawns with the noodle salad and the remaining coriander. Enjoy!
