Yummy dish. I bought already-cooked prawns on a great special at the supermarket, so I adjusted the cooking process slightly. I sprinkled the spices on the prawns (wondered if the coriander might be overpowering, but it wasn't) and set aside. I sauted a combo of chopped broccoli and baby bok choy for a few minutes and then added soaked hokkien noodles and the cooked prawns. Then added the chilli sauce and soy, and cooked to heat through. The flavours were great, but we like a bit more sauce, so in future I'd add up to a 1/2 cup of chicken stock with a teaspoon of cornflour (cornstarch) stirred in. Thanks for posting.
