This is a favourite recipe of mine created by Tauranga chef James Broad from Cuisine concepts. It’s simple and delicious. If you can’t find soba noodles then you can use udon or ramen.
500 grams soba noodles
500 grams prawns
Spring onions, sliced
80 mls Japanese Soy sauce
1 lime – juice and zest
10 mls Fish sauce
50 grams palm sugar
20 mls Bestow Beauty Oil (optional)
Cook noodles till soft, cool.
Add dressing ingredients to saucepan except the Bestow Beauty Oil (if you are using it), heat to dissolve palm sugar, cool, add Bestow Beauty Oil. Combine with noodles and sliced spring onions.
Quickly pan fry prawns in a hot pan with a tbsp of olive oil and a knob of butter. Add to noodles, toss together, season and serve with fresh coriander.
