Ingredients list

(Makes 2 servings)
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes

  • 200g cooked prawns
  • 90g rice noodles
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 chilli
  • Handful coriander
  • 1tsp sesame seeds

For the dressing

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp honey

Method

To make the dressing, mix the lime juice, white wine vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and honey in a bowl. Mince the garlic and mix into the dressing.

Cut the carrot and pepper into thin matchsticks. Do the same with the cucumber, but remove the seeds so that the salad doesn’t become soggy. Finely chop the chilli, remove the seeds if you prefer your food to be less spicy.

Add all of the vegetables into a bowl, pour over half of the dressing and mix until well coated.

Prepare the rice noodles as per the instructions on the packet. Drain well once cooked and split into equal portions.

Add the vegetables on top of the noodles, then add the cooked prawns.

Add the remaining dressing over each dish.

To serve, finely chop the coriander and sprinkle on top with the sesame seeds.
