A luxurious meal recreated by my friend Nicky from her trip to Norway!
1 garlic cloved finely chopped
½ red chilli sliced
½ red onion finely sliced
1 teaspoon grated ginger

Combination of a handful of sugar snap peas, mange tout, spinach, red pepper
Heat a couple of tablespoons of the oil in a wok or large pan. Add the onion, chilli, galic and ginger, folowed by the lemon grass, kaffir leaves and cook gently. Add the coconut milk and simmer for 15 minutes. Add fish sauce and lime juice, add more to adjust taste.
Add the fish, prawns, vegetables and noodles, allow to cook for 3-5 minutes until the prawns are pink and fish cooked through. Add a handful of spinach, stir through.
