Method

  1. Put the noodles in a bowl, breaking them up a little, and cover with boiling water from the kettle. Leave to soak for 10 mins until tender. Drain, rinse under cold running water, then leave the noodles to drain thoroughly.
  2. In the same bowl, lightly squash the cherry tomatoes – we used the end of a rolling pin. Stir in the fish sauce, lime juice, sugar and diced chilli. Taste for the right balance of sweet, sour and spicy – adjust if necessary (see tip, below).
  3. Toss through the noodles, then add all the remaining ingredients, except the sliced chilli. Season and give everything a good stir, then divide the noodle salad between 6 serving dishes and sprinkle over the chilli before serving.

First of all, I agree this only feeds 4 as opposed to 6. Secondly, I got mixed reviews from my family on this recipe - some loved it, found it tasty and refreshing but some really didn't like it at all and found the combinations of flavours a bit off (grapefruit+ prawns + fish sauce etc).

Very good, light and refreshing for a hot day. However, I find this amount serves four rather than six for lunch if this is the only dish being served.
