  1. Cook the noodles following pack instructions, drain, run under cold water and set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large pan. Add the ginger, garlic and chilli, and cook for 2-3 mins. Add the peas and prawns, and cook for 3 mins until the prawns are pink and cooked through. Pour in the eggs, stirring all the time to scrape the cooked egg from the bottom of the pan.

  3. Add the noodles and cook until hot. Stir through the soy, lime juice and spring onions, sprinkle with coriander and serve with the lime wedges.

We thought this was nice and flavoursome but a little dry. Is it meant to be very dry, or can it be made more moist??

This is a great recipe IF you make a few adjustments. Cooked this half measure for my other half and I, but to preference. For 4 If you like it hot and with good flavour: 5 big garlic cloves 40g of ginger after peeling 2 Birdseye chilli’s 8 spring onion Soya beans instead of peas for a bit of crunch All other ingredients are the same. If you like it less hot, but with a kick, add half a Birdseye chilli and a normal chilli instead. The ginger will give a little kick itself without the chilli heat! For two just half it. I’d always recommend using at least a Birdseye chilli as standard chillis from shops are very very hit and miss, which often makes people not try the dish again!

I didn't go easy on the chilli because I like it and, even so, I found this pretty dull. Followed it to the letter but won't be following again! I meant to give it 2 stars as it is perfectly edible, but it came out as 1 and I can't amend it...

Very quick to make and moreish. Even better with a shake of chilli sauce on top.

I cut down on the chilli as per a prior recommendation but it made it so bland - I think it definitely needs the chilli kick to it. It was OK - we gave it 5 out of 10 and won't be doing it again.

Is this suitable for a two year old or too hot?
