This is quickly becoming the most popular dish at our home as it is so quick and easy to make and you just feel so good after eating it. I probably eat this at least twice a week and is the first meal I crave for after working at a festival all weekend. It is also very versatile working well with different shellfish and fish, different meats or simply just with vegetables!


  • 1 tbsp Groundnut oil or Coconut oil works best (Vegetable, Sunflower or Rapeseed can be used as an alternative)
  • 2 spring onions (diced)
  • 3 cloves of garlic (crushed and diced)
  • 1 red chilli (diced)
  • Thumb size piece of ginger (diced)
  • A couple of mushrooms (sliced)
  • Handful of peas
  • Handful of spinach (roughly chopped)
  • 1 litre of Miso stock (or vegetable/fish stock if you don’t have any miso)
  • Noodles (One and a half sheets)
  • 1 tbsp of Welshman’s Caviar (dried and toasted laver seaweed)
  • 2 tsp of Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp of fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • Handful of prawns
  • 1 Celery stick (finely chopped)
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Dash of sweet chilli sauce (optional)
  • Big dollop of crunchy peanut butter (optional – but trust me it works)
  • Dash of sesame oil (optional)


  1. Heat your oil and add spring onion, garlic, chilli and ginger and cook for around 1 minute, stirring with a wooden spoon.
  2. Add your mushrooms, peas and spinach and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  3. Add your stock and bring the mix to boil, once boiling add your noodles, Welshman’s Caviar and soy sauce
  4. Boil for around 2 to 3 minutes and then add your honey, prawns and limejuice, cook until prawns are hot and noodles are soft (another 2 minutes - ish)
  5. Pour into two large bowls, top with your chopped celery, sweet chilli sauce, big dollop of peanut butter and a dash of sesame oil, enjoy!
