Overall a good dish, although the lime juice dominated the flavor and may have been too much. An addition of fish sauce helped to balance that out somewhat. I substituted shrimp for the prawns since I didn't have those. Also, I think it is best to shell the prawns/shrimp completely, as the tails were a little clumsy. The peanuts at the end of the dish were a nice touch! Thanks!

I liked this recipe but I made a slight change I left out the nuts as I did not have any in the cupboard and I added a big bunch of chopped fresh coriander. To me fish sauce chilli lime and coriander just go together.

This was relatively easy to prepare and we just loved the flavors bursting out of this dish. We will have often!

Really great recipe for prawns as we get them fresh straight from the ocean. I added the chili at the end after I served my wife ( aussies can't take a lil heat,lol). Only thing I added was some soy sauce for a lil more salty taste.

I adored this recipe. I took Sue L's comments to heart and cut back to 3T lemon juice, a FULL 2T fish sauce and removed the entire shell from the prawns. I might even try doubling the sauce next time as the noodles soaked it up or I cooked it a bit too long. LOVED the sauce's flavor and the chile's weren't too much for this chile lightweight. This is going to be my next dinner party entree. Just outstanding, KitchenManiac.
