I thought this would be really dull but was looking for something quick to make. I followed the recipe exactly except for adding some Prawns. This was absolutely lovely and really flavourful. Will definitely be making again.

Made this but used 1 tbsp of sesame oil to fry spring onions and coat the noodles. Came out really well.

I added some fish sauce, which enhances the flavours even more!

Even better if you use Toasted Sesame Oil instead of the Vegetable oil!

I serve this with confit duck legs, reheated in the oven and taken off the bone. It makes a tasty, effortless mid-week meal.

Thanks for your question. This is best served fresh but you can keep it in the fridge overnight for the next day.
