Deliciously unusual quick lunch

Made a quick and easy yet deliciously unusual lunch today, using green(ie uncooked) prawns, poached eggs, Indonesian instant noodles, and various herbs and spices! To prepare and cook, it takes less than 10 minutes. The great thing with using uncooked prawns too is that you can use the shells, heads, tails etc to make a fabulous fish stock which is exactly what I did! (Recipe for fish stock coming soon)

So, for 2 people you need:

8 green (uncooked) prawns of a reasonable size(I used Australian banana prawns)
Olive oil
4 eggs(small or medium) +water +vinegar to poach them
Chinese cooking wine
1 85g packet of 'mi goreng'--Indonesian instant noodles
Fresh ginger, grated
Fresh coriander, chopped
Three small cloves garlic
Small amount chopped onion
Squeeze of sweet soya sauce
Salt, pepper

Peel the prawns, reserving the shells, heads, tails etc to use for fish stock. In a pan, fry the chopped onion, add the prawns, garlic, grated ginger, half the coriander, add a little salt and pepper. Stir. Add a teaspoon Chinese cooking wine, stir. When prawns are cooked--they require only a few seconds and go red--turn off heat. Poach the eggs in boiling water to which a good dose of vinegar has been added. Cook the noodles according to instructions. Serve in bowls with the noodles at bottom, then the prawn mixture, and finally the poached eggs on top. Salt, pepper, add a squeeze of sweet soya sauce over the eggs, and the rest of the chopped coriander plus a little more grated ginger. And that's it!
