The noodle portion of this Crispy Prawn And Cucumber Salad recipe can be done ahead. So when you get home from work, just prep the prawns, fry and serve.
Cook noodles to instructions. Drain, rinse in cold water. Place in large bowl.
DRESSING Whisk all ingredients.
Add cucumber, onion, capsicum, green onion and coriander to noodles. Toss through dressing, set aside.
Toss prawns in flour, dip into egg then coat in crumbs. Chill 15 mins.
In a large, deep-frying pan, heat oil on high until a few crumbs sizzle when added (180 C). Fry prawns in 3 batches, 1 to 2 mins each, until golden. Drain on paper towel. Toss through salad and serve sprinkled with coriander.
Use a vegetable peeler to cut cucumber ribbons.
