Prawn Noodles...

Another hot and breezy day. After a couple of hours at Swanpool lying in the sun, we rushed up to Newquay because the Truro ladies A had made into the final. They had to race four times in two days before making the final and it's the first time in ten years they've been there. They came sixth over all and headed off to Truro to celebrate by eating lots of pizza.

I'm desperately trying to lose weight which is tricky when I constantly obsess about food. After last night's barbecue I decided to cook something plain and simple. It was quite bland but just what I needed...

Prawn Noodles:


1 handful of cooked rice noodles
10 tiger prawns
1 clove garlic
1 egg
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
2 tbsp mixed toasted nuts
1 big handful bean sprouts
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 pinch sugar
half lime
1 handful coriander

In a wok dry fry the chopped garlic and prawns. Add the beaten egg and cook as you would an onlette. When cooked take out and put in a bowl (in might look a bit like scrambled egg now.) Back in the wok fry the chilli, beansprouts and half the nuts. Add the fresh noodles and stir fry. After 2 minutes add the sauces.

Take off the heat and toss through the coriander and lime juice and serve with toasted nuts on top.
