Method

Before You Begin

Prepare your ingredients & cooking utensils: Use a chopping board and lay all the ingredients out. Take out any “Pantry Items”. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil for use in Step 1. Mix your butterflied prawns, ginger paste and chopped garlic, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil. Mix your bean chilli paste, teriyaki and soya sauce with a touch of water and a good glug of olive oil to make a mixed sauce.

Washing Instruction

Wash your hands, carrots, spring onion and green beans well. Rinse your swiss chard thoroughly and drain on paper towel.

Gino's Tip

It's always a better idea to flavour your noodles when making stir fry, this way you don't end up with a watery sauce when you do it the alternate way and flavour your vegetables.

Step 1 - Noodles

Once your water in your large saucepan has come to the boil, cook your egg noodles for 5-6 minutes until tender. Drain through a colander and reserve for later - no need to drizzle with olive oil.

Step 2 - Meaty Base

Heat a large casserole pan over med-high heat, once the pan is hot, add a drizzling of olive oil, then fry your sliced carrots, sliced spring onion and chopped green beans and sesame seeds for 4-5 minutes until tender - it's important that your carrots are not sliced too thick so they cook through but still have a bit of a bite. Once your vegetables are tender add your marinated prawns with a little olive oil, cook for 3-4 minutes and mix through your roughly shredded swiss chard until it's wilted. Taste and season with salt and pepper, bearing in mind that your sauce is salty too. Transfer to a serving dish.

Step 3 - Finishing your Noodles

Heat your large casserole pan, add a drizzling of olive oil and your mixed sauce once your sauce bubble vigorously, add your cooked noodles and mix through until coated in sauce, now add your meaty base and remove your pan from the heat.

TO SERVE

Divide your sesame prawn noodles amongst your servings.
