Prawn and Rice Noodles

You know how sometimes you just get a craving for something out of the blue? And you just can't rest / enjoy another meal until you've had it? 

Well that was me last week. 

All I wanted was some Singapore Noodles with Prawns.....and I don't even eat prawns! 

Ridiculous I say, but none the less, took up the challenge and set about making this recipe for Prawn and Rice Noodles I had floating around my recipe folder. 

You will need:

250g rice vermicelli noodles
5 spring onions, thinly sliced
2 tspns crushed garlic 
300g medium green prawns, peeled and deveined, with the tails removed
1 medium tomato, diced
2 cups roughly shredded wombok (Chinese cabbage)
1/4 cup Hoi Sin Sauce
2 tbspns soy sauce
1 egg, lightly beaten
Place noodles in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside while you prepare the rest of the dish. 
Heat a wok or fry pan over medium-high heat and spray with cooking oil. 
Add eschalots and garlic. Stir-fry for 1 minute or until softened. 
Add prawns. Stir-fry for 3 minutes or until prawns are just pink. 
Add tomato and wombok. Stir-fry for 1 minute or until heated through.
Add noodles, hoi sin, soy and season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. 
Add egg. Stir-fry for 1 minute or until egg is cooked and Ta-Da! 

Just like that, you have created a delicious dish that people will think came from the local chinese takeaway, not from your very own kitchen!

This recipe made enough for Mr B and I to have a GIANT bowl each...but in reality it would easily make 4 normal sized meals. 

Craving satisfied. 

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!
