Recipe of the Week – Prawn Pad Thai with Courgetti
If you eat this in a Thai restaurant a single portion can contain a whopping 600 to 900kcals! However, our delicious version, made with courgetti instead of regular noodles, is low in carbs and only 200 kcals per serving.
A prefect takeaway replacement that tastes delicious!

2 large courgettes
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 spring onions, sliced
1 small green chilli, diced
200g peeled raw prawns
100g cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
1 medium free-range egg, lightly beaten
grated zest and juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp Thai fish sauce (nam pla)
1 tbsp soy sauce
50g bean sprouts
a handful of coriander, finely chopped
Spiralise the courgettes using blade C of a spiraliser. If you don’t have one, you can use a julienne peeler, a mandolin slicer or an ordinary potato peeler, but you will have thicker ‘noodles’.
Lightly spray a wok or deep-frying pan with oil and set over a high heat. Add the garlic, spring onions and chilli and stir-fry briskly for 1 minute. Add the prawns and stir-fry for 1–2 minutes until they turn pink.
Add the courgettes and tomatoes and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until warmed through and the courgettes are just tender but still retain a little ‘bite’.
Push everything to the side of the pan and pour the beaten egg into the middle. Cook for 1 minute, stirring all the time, until it scrambles. Stir into the courgette and prawn mixture.
Add the lime zest and juice, nam pla, soy sauce and bean sprouts. Stir-fry for a minute. Stir in the coriander and remove from the heat.
Divide the mixture between two shallow serving bowls and eat immediately.
If you don’t have raw prawns, use ready-cooked ones instead. If they are frozen, defrost thoroughly before using.
If you’re on a low-salt diet, use low-sodium Thai fish sauce and soy sauce.
