This is the only recipe I have written down in what was supposed to be a Recipe Books
I should do with others, cos following recipes is much easier for me.
And cooking can be very hard under a Narco-spell. Lose concentration and food can become kaka.

And one this one is relatively easy - and safe - and my Chinese flatmate loves it whenever I cook for us.

Prawn Stir Fry Noodles

Initial Preparation

On a Bowl - the Prawns

Marinade approx 150g of King Size Raw Prawns with very little:
- chopped garlic
- chopped chillies - generous amount if dish is to be spicy
- Lemon Thyme
for a minimum of 2 hours

On a Saucer - the Chopped mix
Mix a handful of chopped:
- garlic
- ginger
- chillies

On a Tall Glass - the Sauce
Mix the following:
- 1/8 Thai Fish Sauce
- 1/8 Soy Sauce
- 1/2 Squeezed Lime
- A tiny bit of 5-spice
- 1/2 handful of chopped fresh coriander
- A stem of lemon grass (optional)
- Top the rest of with mineral water

On a Pasta Sieve - the Noodles
Boil just for the purpose of separating the threads
3 Amoy Straight to Wok Fine Thread Noodle
with a dash of Toasted Sesame Seed Oil
then drain.

On a Bigger Bowl - the Veggies
- Chop 3 Spring Onions
- 1/2 Green Pepper
- 1/4 Courgette
- Break 1/4 Brocolli into floweretes
- 6 Mange-touts
- 6 diced mushrooms
- 6 diced baby-corns
- Optional: A handful of bamboo-shoots not the tinned variety
- Optional: any other stir-fry veggies you want to add


On a Wok
Add a very generous amount of Sunflower oil and heat it to maximum

- Add the
the Saucer Mix: Chopped Ginger/Garlic/Chillies and fry that for about 30 seconds or until
almost toasting

- Add the Veggies and the Prawns together and stir-fry those for about 3 minutes or until
all prawns are pink in colour

- Then add the Sauce followed by the Noodles on top but try and not mix both.
Tuck and mix everything from below instead.
Do that for about 2 minutes or so. Or Leave it for less if you want the veggies very crunchy.

The End
