During the week, like many parents, I enjoy quick meals that will help to feed my little family. My son Ted loves prawns and so does my husband Howard. Therefore I know this meal will be well received by them both. It pleases me that Howard and Ted like prawns as they are actually filled with nutrition.
Prawns are a rich source of selenium, one of the most effective antioxidants at maintaining healthy cells. They also contain high levels of Zinc, which is important to develop a healthy immune system. Eating prawns helps build strong bones because they contain phosphorous, copper and magnesium. That’s why I love prawns and why I like feeding them to my family in meals like this one.

Sticky Noodle Prawn Stir Fry was a hit with my little family. We all really enjoyed this dish. It was a very easy meal to prepare and cook too. You could make the sauce in advance of the meal and store it in the fridge or freezer. Although, it only takes a few minutes to make the sauce so I don’t think it saves much time. The meal, on the other hand, was so yummy and it’s definitely one dish we will be eating again soon. However you decide to eat this meal, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
