Thai flavored stir fry with coriander garlic prawns

Standard

This is a very tasty, simple and yet delicious dish. It’s perfect for those nights where you want to make something special for a friend coming over but don’t have tons of time for cooking. A quick walk to your favorite supermarket for the fresh ingredients and a food lovers well equipped cupboard will offer all the sauces, spices and herbs you need. Once again: easy is right.

As usually in my recipes you can play with the vegetables as well as the noodles, instead of rice noodles soba or egg noodles would work too, so would brown rice, jasmin or basmati rice.

What you need:
Serves 2

6 fresh, large king prawns
1 zucchini
1 fennel
1/2 box of cherry tomatoes
Small bunch of spring onions
Garlic
Fresh coriander
Fresh ginger
1 lemon
1 lime

Rice noodles, soba noodles (already cooked) or rice

Sesame oil
Fish sauce
Tamari
Worcester sauce
Chilies

What to do:

Put on some nice music and pour yourself a glass of wine. This step is not mandatory but I promise you being relaxed and happy will improve the flavor of the dish :)
Take your time to prepare all vegetables, wash and cut them in thin, bite-sized pieces. I like to prepare them in little bowls. Chop ginger finely, press the garlic. Wen everything is prepared heat up a wok pan on very hight temperature. Start with the ginger and garlic and then add veg one after the other (the harder ones first). Now stir regularly for some minutes (important otherwise everything will burn!). In the meantime heat up a frying pan, add sesame oil, garlic and fry the prawns just for a couple of minutes to avoid dryness. Deglaze the vegetables with lemon and lime juice, add the sauces and add a splash of water. Add the rice noodles and mix everything thoroughly. Try a bit so you can add more if you like it more salty or sour. Add the fresh coriander to the prawns. Switch the hob off and prepare a bed of the veg-noodle mix (if you use rice don’t mix it and serve it separately instead). Put the king prawns to bed, sprinkle with coriander and enjoy!
