Chilli, lime & ginger prawn stir fry.

20160104_180624You can’t beat a good stir fry!! I for one have had my fill of turkey so I found some frozen prawns at the bottom of the freezer.  Along with what vegetables I have left, a stir fry is one of the easiest meals to make.  But please do not go and ruin all that healthy stuff by adding a packet of processed stir fry sauce!! Make your own, its so easy to add flavour without having to drown all the goodness in a sauce that is probably packed with sugar and additives.  As with all the recipes that I post the end result is what suits my taste, so please feel free to adjust to your own personal taste.  This recipe will make 2 servings.


200g king prawns (fresh or frozen )

I red pepper

1 yellow pepper

1 carrot

1 red onion

3 cloves of garlic

1 lime (juiced)

1 red chilli

Fresh ginger

1tbsp toasted sesame oil

1 tbsp soy sauce (low sodium one)

1 tbsp all purpose seasoning (salt free, I use the Gym Chef one , you can buy it online

1 tbsp Worchester sauce

Handful of fresh coriander

250g Medium Egg Noodles ( I’m using the sharwoods brand)

  1. Firstly make the marinade for the prawns with the lime juice, ginger and chilli.  Leave prawns to marinade for as long as possible to get the full flavour!
  2. Peel and chop all your vegetables.
  3. In a wok heat up half a tablespoon of the toasted sesame oil, fry off the onion, garlic, peppers and carrot and toss around for about 3-4 mins.
  4. Add in the prawns and the marinade along with the soy sauce, all purpose seasoning and Worcester sauce.  This should only take about 3- 4 mins as you do not want to overcook the prawns!
  5. In a saucepan, boil some water and add the noodles and cook for about 4 mins, remove from the water and toss them in the remaining toasted sesame oil.  Add them into the prawns and veg and add some chopped fresh coriander!
Finally eat and enjoy!
