  • 2 teaspoons dark roasted sesame oil
  • 12 raw prawns, shelled and deveined, tails left intact
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 cm knob of ginger, cut into fine matchsticks
  • ½ onion, finely sliced
  • Sea salt
  • 1 carrot, cut into fine matchsticks
  • 5 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 baby corn, halved
  • 100g sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 200g fresh flat rice noodles
  • 2 tablespoons shoyu
  • 3 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 tablespoon ginger juice (see Note)
  • 1/3 cup roasted cashews
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped coriander


  1. Heat half the sesame oil in a frying pan or wok over medium heat. Add the prawns and fry for 7 minutes, or until pink and firm. Set aside on paper towel.
  2. Heat the remaining sesame oil in a frying pan or wok over medium heat and sauté the garlic and ginger for 1 minute. Add the onion, a pinch of sea salt and enough water to cover the base of the pan. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes, until the onion is soft. Add the carrot and mushroom and simmer for 3-5 minutes, or until tender. Add the corn and sugar snap peas, then add the noodles and prawns. Cover and simmer over low heat for 3 minutes – you may need to add a little water to prevent the vegetables from sticking.
  3. Stir through the shoyu, mirin and ginger juice. Serve hot with cashews and coriander on top.
