I made this on the fly, when I needed a quick dinner. It was really tasty. I found a packet of somen noodles at the back of the cupboard and in a bid not to waste anything I used it. I served it on a bed of stir fried veg to increase the veggie content.
Somen Noodles with Prawn Curry and Peas (from Noodles
3 tbsp veg oil
1 garlic clove, minced
thumb sized piece of ginger, finely grated
1 tbsp curry powder
juice and zest 2 lemons
salt and pepper
300g somen noodles
24 raw large prawns
150g frozen peas
1 spring onion, thinly sliced
In a medium bowl combine 1 tbsp of the oil, the garlic, ginger, curry powder, lemon juice and zest. Season with salt and pepper, add the prawns, toss, and set aside to marinate for 20 mins.
Bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the somen and cook for about 2 mins. Shock in ice-cold water. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Saute the prawns and the marinade for about 1 min. Add the peas and toss for 1 min more. Add the prawns and peas with their sauce to the noodles. Mix well and divide between 6 bowls. Sprinkle over the spring onion and serve.
