Garlic Prawns and Rice Noodles

Fresh ingredients are alway important when making a meal. I love when certain fruits or vegetables are in season. They just add that oomph into any meal. I do not mind cooking from scratch as that’s how I was brought up.

I love sea food, and enjoy making it myself when I get the chance.

Notes

The reason I stir fry the prawns first is because they can get soggy and if you mix them with everything in the beginning it loses its flavour. I did not add too much salt as the curry paste had flavour and it would overpower the taste. This goes well with a semi-dry rose, resiling or chardonnay wine.
