The other day I popped into the fish shop, in Wicklow and asked Alan for some of his fabulous Dublin Bay Prawns and a new type of flat fish for my son to try. As soon as got home I knew exactly what I was making with the Prawns, Egg Noodles with a hand full of fresh ingredients, quick, simple and delicious.
for this recipe you will need:
- I packet of fine egg noodles, this gives you a generous main course portion for three people.
- 1 red onion, finely sliced length ways
- 2 spring onions, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 1/2 inch of fresh ginger, finely chopped into small match sticks
- 1/2 fresh red chilli, seeds removed, finely chopped
- A dash of fish sauce
- A generous amount of dark soya sauce
- Boiled water to cook noodles
- oil/cooking spray
- salt and pepper to taste
Place the noodles into a large bowl, top them with boiling water from the kettle and cover with cling film. In the mean time add oil/spray to a large frying pan, on a medium heat fry the onion, garlic and ginger. (Try not to burn the garlic as it will taste bitter). when they are a light brown colour your ready to add the prawns, spring onions and chillis. keep mixing and cooking on a medium heat until the prawns are fully cooked. By now the noodles should be cooked, drain and add to the prawn. Add a couple of splashes of fish sauce and a generous amount of soya, keep cooking and tossing for a couple of minutes, season to taste and your ready to serve!
If you have picky eaters who don’t like fish, remove the prawns from the pan, set aside and toss just the noodles in the fish and soya sauce.
You could add veg or even tofu, its so simple to make, you could easily serve this up mid week.
