How to make it

  1. In a food processor, whizz up the Gran Luchito Chipotle Chilli Paste, lime zest and juice, coriander stalks, garlic, sugar and fish sauce into a paste. Empty onto the prawns in a bowl and mix well. (This could be done a couple of hours before so as to maximise the effect of the marinade.)
  2. Heat a wok with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, add the spring onions and ginger and fry for about a minute.
  3. Add the beansprouts and fry for another 2 minutes, followed by the crushed peanuts, soy sauce and a good pinch of pepper. Empty the contents of the wok into a bowl, clean the wok, then return it to the heat.
  4. Heat another 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the wok. Once hot, use a slotted spoon to add the prawns (leaving the marinade in the bowl for now) to the wok and toss in the hot oil.
  5. After a minute or so (once the prawns have turned pink), turn down the heat, add the marinade and cook for another 2 minutes.
  6. Add the noodles, vegetables and half of the coriander leaves. Mix well, then sprinkle with the coriander leaves and serve with wedges of lime.
