Method

  1. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a large bowl, taste and add seasoning, if you like. Cover the noodles in freshly boiled water and let soak for 5 mins, then drain, rinse under the cold tap and add to the bowl with the dressing. Stir through the courgette and leave to cool completely.
  2. Mix through the crabmeat and the rest of the ingredients. Using clean hands, pile onto plates, drizzling with any leftover dressing from the bowl. Serve with lime wedges.
