Method

  1. Cook the noodles following the pack instructions, drain and set aside for later. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and pour in the beaten egg. Swirl around the pan to make a thin omelette, cook for 1-2 mins, then flip over and cook the other side for 1 min. Tip out and slice into thin strips.
  2. Add the chilli and ginger to the pan, fry for 1-2 mins then tip in the noodles, prawns and egg. Splash in the soy sauce and stir-fry for 1 min more. Throw in the chopped herbs and pour over the lime juice and zest, then sprinkle over the chopped peanuts and serve.

I add a tin of coconut milk to this and it's lovely!! (I use raw prawns and cook them in the coconut milk). I also have added sliced onion & peppers if I have them.

I'm not sure what I did wrong here buy my partner and I did not enjoy this at all. We felt that the mint was very overpowering and it definately needed some sauce and some crunch.
I may try it again with some garlic added and some sliced veg but overall we were both very disappointed.

Loved this....added some peppers and red onion so my 2 year old will get more veggies! Used some wholewheat pasta too. Well worth trying.

Made this with half and half fish sauce and soy sauce for more of a thai flavour and also added a few spring onions and peppers. Very nice recipe though. Thumbs up all round.

Being a fan of phad thai, I really enjoyed this dish as it had similar textures and flavours. It was a bit dry which is my only reason for giving it a 4 rather than a 5, but a few drops of sweet chilli sauce sorted that out and worked well with the flavours. A definite addition to my mid-week meals folder.

This was one of the best things I've ever tasted!!! So simple and fresh and takes minutes. I added about 3 cloves of chopped garlic at the same time as the chilli and ginger and was quite free with the soy sauce, too. The second time I made it, I added some raw beansprouts just before the noodles which gave it a bit of crunch. I also sauteed a sliced chicken breast and served that on a bed of the noodle mix, taking out the prawns for my son who doesn't like them. Really tasty, quick, healthy, delicious mid-week supper!
