Try this easy and quick Sweet Chilli Prawns and Noodles for dinner tonight - all ready in less than 30 minutes.
As much as I love cooking, occasionally even I am rushed for time and need a meal that I can put together really quickly and get on the table for supper.
Stir fries are great dishes for those moments, as it literally is just a case of stir frying some vegetables, adding a protein and then some rice or noodles and a stir fry sauce of choice. Nothing complicated.
One of my favourite quick marinades for a stir fry is using sweet chilli sauce. I love that sweet and spicy kick it gives and even my kids will tolerate the slight spiciness, meaning it is great for the whole family too. I mix it with a few other ingredients such as ginger, garlic, soy sauce and tomato paste just to up the flavour and it is perfect!!.
I even save time on the vegetables, by using handy bagged slaw mixes like these ones below. I buy one or two bags of these a week as they are perfect for throwing into stir fries on days when we have a busy schedule. No time has to be spent chopping veg. Also as the veg is shredded almost like noodles, the kids don't even realize there is all that veg in there when you add some noodles. So they are a great choice for fussy eaters.
You can also add some more spice to this Sweet Chilli Prawn and Noodles by adding a sliced red chilli if you like that extra kick and if you don't fancy noodles it is also perfect with some cooked rice.
Change up the protein too, while I have used prawns here - chicken, pork or even tofu would work really well in this dish too.
