Aaron Craze’s super speedy stir fry with crunchy cashews and ginger and garlic prawns makes an ideal last minute meal


1. Soak the noodles in boiling water for 10 minutes or according to packet instructions. Drain well.

2. Heat a large wok over a high heat. As soon as it starts to smoke add the oil, garlic, ginger, prawns, spring onions and chilli and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes.

3. Tip in the noodles, rice wine vinegar and stock, if using, and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.

4. Finally add the lime juice and oyster sauce and toss together. Scatter over the coriander and cashew nuts and serve.


  • 1 packets dried egg noodles
  • 1 tbsp groundnut oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely sliced
  • 5 cm piece fresh ginger, cut into long thin strips
  • 200 g Tiger prawns
