Hot & Sour Red Thai Prawn Noodles

This recipe has been shortlisted in the ‘Best of Pinterest UK’ food & drink awards in the ‘Best Go To Recipe’ category.

Thai food is high on my list of favourite foods, add seafood and I am sold. Totally and utterly sold. We have a great Chinese market here in Birmingham and when I paid a visit the other day, I picked up some egg noodles with the intention of making this dish. A coconut base, infused with red Thai flavourings and a squeeze of lime to give the perfect balance of hot and sour. Spooned on top of a heap of noodles, it would be great for lunch or dinner. Super quick and easy to make and completely delicious, well I think so.

Completely fresh ingredients, with prawns bought at the fish market and a sprinkle of coriander from my very own garden. What’s great is, you can make a huge pot and just pop it in the middle for the table and watch your guests spoon in the goodness. If you wanted to make it for a group of more than 3, just double up on the ingredients.
