Sesame noodles with Prawns

a DIY takeaway dinner

By: Izy Hossack
A sesame-spiked peanut dressing is key to these sesame noodles with prawns and fresh veggies. We’ve used soba noodles as they work great when they’re cold and have a nutty flavor which complements the dressing nicely.


  • To make the dressing, stir the peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame oil until smooth and thick. Thin with the water then add hot sauce, to taste.
  • Cook the noodles in a large pot of boiling water for 3 minutes (or according to the package directions) then drain and rinse under cold water. Add to a bowl and toss with the dressing.
  • Cook the prawns in a frying pan over a medium heat with a splash of water, turning as needed, until pink and cooked through. Drain and add them to the noodles.
  • Add the thinly sliced vegetables and sesame seeds to the noodles and toss everything to combine then serve.
  • Enjoy!
