Tiffany Goodall makes a simple, speedy supper inspired by her travels in Thailand using the nation’s favourite frozen seafood – prawns


1 Place the egg noodles in boiling water and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Then drain.

2. Heat a large wok on a medium heat with the oil and when hot add the garlic, chillies and ginger. Cook for a minute, stirring all the time and then add in the noodles with a little of the water. Turn up the heat.

3. Now add in the nam pla, oyster sauce, sugar, lime juice, beansprouts and prawns. Stir well.

4. Add the cashew nuts and spring onions. Taste and adjust seasoning - add some more lime juice or nam pla if necessary.

5. Serve the noodles with some lime wedges, coriander leaves and chopped cashew nuts.

really easy to make and delicious! I made it with stir fried veg instead of just spring onions and it was lovely.

I was very worried when I added the thai fish sauce- It smells terrible, however I was very happy with the end result! The smell does go and it tasted really nice. I will be cooking this again. It is so quick and easy.
