SERVES 1

TOTAL 10 MINUTES

1 pak choi
1 clove of garlic
2cm piece of ginger
75g fine free-range egg noodles
80g raw peeled king prawns, from sustainable sources
1 heaped teaspoon sesame seeds
1 heaped teaspoon chilli jam
2 teaspoons low-salt soy sauce

1. Finely slice the pak choi, putting the leaves aside. Char the base slices in a dry non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat, while you peel and finely slice the garlic, then peel and finely grate the ginger. Cook the noodles in a pan of boiling water according to the packet instructions, adding the pak choi leaves for the last 10 seconds. Alongside, stir-fry the garlic, ginger, prawns, sesame seeds, chilli jam and 1 tablespoon of olive oil with the charred pak choi slices.

2. Pour the soy into a serving bowl. As soon as the prawns are pink, spoon everything from the pan into the bowl, then use tongs to drag in the noodles and pak choi leaves with a few splashes of cooking water. Twist and toss it all together well, taste and check the seasoning, then devour your spicy prawn noodles.
