My Favourite Dinner

I've you've followed me on my previous blog you will have seen this one a few times! It has to be my favourite meal, I eat it every week, it takes minutes to prepare, tastes amazing, is so satisfying, and, it's pretty healthy too!
Oh, I almost forgot, it's prawn Pad Thai!

My original recipe post for Pad Thai is HERE

But since I was enjoying playing with my food and took some photos I thought I would re-post

Serves 1:
  • 100g King Prawns
  • 80g Noodles
  • 20g/2 Spring Onions
  • 50g Carrots Sliced Julienne style
  • 15g Cashew or Monkey Nuts (I used pine nuts this time as I had run out of the others - not quite the same but still works well enough)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Tsp Dark Brown Muscovado Sugar
  • ½ Tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Groundnut Oil

Mix together the fish sauce, lime juice, sugar and cayenne pepper to make your sauce

Soak noodles in boiling water to soften

Finely chop carrots and spring onions

Heat some groundnut oil (or oil/fat of your choice but avoid olive oil since you want to stir fry quickly on  high heat)

Fry carrot and spring onion until soft

Add prawns then stir fry until cooked/heated through

Drain the noodles then add to the stir fry

Add the egg (you can use half an egg but I use a whole egg because it's easier) and scramble it in

Once the egg is cooked pour over the sauce and stir in the nuts

Now eat!

I apologise for the lack of posts lately, I'm stuck in bed with flu just now and struggling to find the energy to do anything and rather oddly my appetite is gone so food is the last thing on my mind right now!
