Tasty Tuesday’s Noodle Doodle

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet. I trust this morning finds you well and in the throes of a good week whether it be work or play.

Today as you might gathered is Tuesday and that means yet another recipe for Tasty Tuesday. Once again it is a recipe inspired by my new favourite chef, Nigel Slater….

So what is it we have for you today?

Well I think the title gives it away somewhat but no matter, it is still amazing….

Today it is Noodles with Prawns and Egg.

It’s good 🙂


  1. 230gms Uncooked Prawns.
  2. 3 Cloves Garlic – finely sliced.
  3. 1 Large Chilli – finely chopped.
  4. 2 Small Carrots – peeled then shaved.
  5. Small bunch Spring Onions – chopped.
  6. 3 Teaspoons of Shallots – finely chopped.
  7. 200gms Udon Noodles.
  8. 50gms Toasted Cashews.
  9. Slug of Ground Nut Oil.
  10. 3 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce.
  11. 3 Teaspoons of Toasted Sesame Oil.
  12. Coconut Oil.


Put some water in a pan and set to boil.


Add the Udon Noodles.


Finely chop the Chilli, finely slice the Garlic cloves and chop the Spring Onion.


Peel and take the ends off of the Carrot.


Then shave into strips.


Remove the Noodles from the pan and drain in a sieve.


Roughly chop the Coriander and the Carrot shavings.


Put a glug of Ground Nut Oil in a pan and heat.


As it heats, put the Soy and the Sesame Oil into a tub and mix together.


Add the Cashews to the hot oil and start to toast.


Pour boiling water over the Noodles in order to wash the starch off of them.


The Cashews take literally only a couple of minutes before they start to toast.


Beat the Egg in a small container and put to one side.


Take a few teaspoons of Shallots and put to one side.


Take the Uncooked Prawns and slice into their backs so they curl and cook much thicker.


I find to is best to have all of the prepared ingredients sat to one side ready to add in order as the dish cooks very quickly.


Heat some Coconut Oil.


Once up to temperature, add the Chilli’s, Garlic and Spring Onion.


Next add the Shaved Carrots.


Mix in well and start to get toasted.


Add the Prawns.


Once the Prawns are “pink” add the Noodles.


And stir in well.


Before adding the Soy and the Sesame Oil.


Once this is mixed in, add the Egg but be sure to keep the mixture moving so as to cook the Egg in small pieces.


Before adding the Shallots.


Followed by the Cashew Nuts.


Again mix these ingredients well one last time.


And serve with some Coriander sprinkled over the top.


Eh, Voila!

So, as I have said to you guys many times before, put down your electronic gadget that you are reading this on (after liking this post of course) and get out in that kitchen and start to rustle up something tasty…..!

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.

    This looks so delicious… a wonderful combination of flavors! I love looking at the pictures, the packaging is so interesting to me. Are those shallots already chopped? I’ve noticed other examples as well- just the right amount of an ingredient, etc. I feel like your grocery stores are really trying to make things easier for people to get into their kitchens and cook from scratch. It’s awesome!

    I’m salivating as I scan through the pictures. I am definitely giving you a call on my next trip to England. You know how to provide a real meal for a guest. I know it’s not polite to invite myself, but it’s your fault with the meals you produce. 😀
