About this recipe:This is a warm noodle salad with prawns, steamed broccoli, carrots and red pepper. I steamed the vegetables but you could add them raw for more crunch, or if you like it better that way.
Cook the rice noodles according to instructions on the packet. Drain and transfer to a salad bowl.
Place broccoli and carrots into a steaming basket over boiling water; steam for about 5 minutes, or until it's cooked to your liking. Add to the noodles. Place sliced red pepper into the steamer and steam for 2 to 3 minutes until cooked. Add to the noodles as well.
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add prawns and fry on all sides until they are pink on the outside and cooked through. Add garlic and fry for a few more minutes. Remove from the stove, stir in sesame oil and chilli flakes; stir into the noodles.
For the dressing: Whisk together 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, rice vinegar, lime juice, sugar, soy sauce and fish sauce in a small bowl, until sugar has completely dissolved. Pour over the noodles and toss carefully until well combined. Sprinkle with spring onions and freshly chopped coriander; serve.
