200 g bean sprouts
2 carotts peeled and finely grated
1/2 cucumber cut into thin strips
1 lettuce heart shredded
16 cooked and shelled prawns
Chopped mint, handful
Chopped coriander, a handful

For the sauce
100 g caster sugar

The juice of two lemons
3 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
1 bird’s eye chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

Cook the noodles as per the instructions on the packet. Drain and rinse in cold water. Divide between four serving bowls.

Make the sauce by disolving the sugar in the fish sauce and lemon juice.  Add the chilli, salt and garlic then mix well

Divide the herbs and vegetables between the bowls, top with the prawns and pour over the sauce. Easy.
