Asparagus, prawn and lemon grass stir fry with soba noodles

Asparagus, prawn and lemon grass stir fry with soba noodles


Fill a saucepan with boiling water and cook the noodles according to the packet instructions until al dente (about 5 minutes instead of the usual 6–8). Then drain, rinse well with cold water (to stop them cooking), then drain, drizzle with oil (to stop them sticking) and set aside. Meanwhile, melt half the oil in a wok over a medium-high heat. Add the prawns and cook for 1 minute until they change from grey to pink, then transfer to another bowl and set aside. Melt the remaining half of the oil, turn the heat up high and add the ginger, garlic, lemongrass, chilli and spring onions and fry for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the asparagus and baby spinach and cook for 30 seconds, then add the tamari, fish sauce and fresh lime juice. Increase the heat to high, add the cooked noodles and prawns to the wok. Toss to combine and heat through for 30 moreseconds. Serve immediately, topped with the green parts of the spring onions, fresh coriander and scattered with sesame seeds.
