Hot & sour noodle soup with king prawns

serves 2

Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, then place in a sieve to drain and run under hot water to rinse and separate the strands. Pour the stock into a medium saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat.

Add the noodles and ginger. Reduce the heat to a simmer and add the lime juice, fish sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, half the chilies, the snow peas and prawns.

Simmer, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes or until the prawns have changed colour and are cooked through. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with the remaining chilli, and the coriander and spring onions. Serve with the lime wedges.
