(at time of publication)
- 250g rice noodles
- oil spray
- 16 prawns, defrosted, shelled and tails removed
- 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 1 tablespoon chilli paste (see tip) or Thai red curry paste
- 4 cups chopped bok choy or spinach
- 4 carrots, cut in ribbons
- 3 spring onions, sliced diagonally
- ¼ cup roasted peanuts or roasted cashews
- 3 kaffir lime leaves, thinly sliced (optional)
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ¼ cup water
- 1 lime, juice
- 1 sliced red chilli or ½ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
1 Cook rice noodles following packet directions. Drain and set aside. In a jug combine sauce ingredients and set aside.
2 Heat a wok or large pan over a medium-high heat. Spray with oil. Add prawns, chicken and chilli paste. Stir-fry until prawns are coloured and cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside.
3 Spray pan with oil and add bok choy, carrots and spring onions. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add noodles to pan, toss to combine and stir-fry for 1 more minute. Add sauce to pan and toss to coat noodles. Return prawn mixture to pan, with peanuts and lime leaves (if using). Toss to combine and serve immediately.
I used chilli paste with soy bean oil, available from Asian supermarkets, also known as Nam Prik Prao, or roasted chilli paste.
