Sesame Orange Prawns with Egg Noodles

Simple, easy, tasty… what more could you want?

The orange element comes from marmalade instead of fresh oranges. I have altered the recipe below as we found it got a bit too bitter where the noodles didn’t get tossed properly. Feel free to alter it to your tastes of course. And if you love chilli, I’d suggest you definitely add some!

A dish that will become regular in our household 🙂

Sesame Orange Prawns with Egg Noodles
Adapted from Delicious Magazine

2 tablespoons orange marmalade
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
300g egg noodles (400g if you are hungry!)
1 tablespoon peanut oil, plus 1 teaspoon to toss noodles
1 small red capsicum, thinly sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
12 green prawns, peeled, devined (I used frozen, deshelled prawns)
4 spring onions, thinly sliced on an angle
Coriander leaves, to serve

1. Combine the marmalade, soy, garlic, ginger, vinegar and sesame oil in a small bowl. Set aside.

2. Cook noodles in boiling salted water according to instructions. Drain, toss with 1 teaspoon peanut oil and set aside.

3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon peanut oil in wok or deep frypan over medium-high heat. Add capsicum and onion and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until softened. Add prawns and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until cooked through (if using frozen prawns, add in with the capsicum and onion). Add sauce mixture, toss to coat prawns, then add noodles and toss for 1-2 minutes until heated through. Toss through spring onion and coriander and serve immediately.

Serves 2.

    sesame oil really makes my heart sing. I love the flavour it imparts. I wish I could just text you whenever I want homemade yummy noodles and you could make them for me. sound tempting? I’ll make you a cup of tea while you cook? Maybe even two cups…??

    What a great combo with the orange. We have prawns in the freezer – now I know what to do with them 😀

    Chilli would be an addition for me, love chilli. I use marmalade in a few savoury recipes, but would never have thought using with noodles, love the idea.

    This kind of savory noodle food is totally awesome! I’m a noodle lover and I want to try cooking this recipe. Looks like a stir-fry noodle, but I think this is much delicious!
