Soba Noodles with Prawns and Coriander-Sesame Dressing

This year, Fairprice Finest Food is introducing the art of LAGOM – the Swedish philosophy for living a balanced life.

     

Lagom: Not too little. Not too much. Just right.⁣

I really resonate with this as I find myself striving for balance rather than living in extremes (is that the Libra in me maybe??), and this also extends to how I create my meals. Balanced in terms of nutrition, flavours and textures. Swipe right to check out the recipe for the dish!⁣⁣

Salt

Dressing

½ cup sesame soy dressing (I used Golden Chef)

Your favourite corn chips, crushed (I used Good Life Finute Korean Chips)

  5. In the same pan, sautée sliced onions until soft. Add in sugar snap peas, season with salt and cook for 2 min, or until tender. Set aside
  6. In a small bowl, mix the sesame dressing, chopped coriander and grated ginger
  7. To assemble, toss noodles with the dressing, salad leaves, sautéed vegetables and prawns in a large bowl. Garnish and serve!
