Speedy Prawn Stir Fry

Today, after lunch, my Mum visited and my two year old told her “Had some yummy food”. George really seems to love this meal and it is certainly a hit with his Dad too. I love this stir fry, not only because it so tasty, but it is so quick! If I concentrate and put aside distractions (hard to do with a little boy in the house) then I can get this meal done in 10 minutes. With a whole pack of stir fry vegetables in this dish it is a good recipe to get kids eating vegetables that they usually refuse. I really recommend this stir fry it is the perfect way to get a delicious meal on the table in no time at all and is a must on your meal plan.

Serves 4


  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 250g pre-cooked prawns (I use frozen prawns and defrost them in my fridge)
  • approx 250g noodles
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp tamarind paste
  • Packet of fresh ready to use stir fry vegetables (approx 400g)
  • Handful fresh coriander.


  1. Tip the ground spice and soy sauce over the prawns and mix well.
  2. Heat noodles in boiling water according to packet instructions.
  3. Pour oil into a large wok and put on a high heat, when oil is really hot add prawns, scraping out all the of spices into the wok.
  4. Move prawns quickly around wok for only a few minutes before adding prepared vegetables. Stir for a minute or two, keeping the heat high.
  5. Mix in honey and tamarind paste, keep stirring. This should take approx 4-5 minutes.
  6. Drain noodles, transfer to the wok and use chop sticks to mix everything together.
  7. Serve with some fresh coriander.

Tip: If you like spicy food try adding a large helping of white pepper to this dish. White pepper gives heat, but provides a different flavour to chilli.

    Was easy to make and delicious! Loved the honey taste, tho didn’t put in as much as recipe said (about half) but only making it for 2! Didn’t have quite enough stir-fry left so added some more red pepper and spring onion of my own!
