- Prepare the noodles according to the packet instructions, drain and rinse under cold water.
- Meanwhile, mix together the ginger, garlic, chilli, coriander, lime juice, fish sauce and dark soy sauce and pour over the prawns. Toss well to coat.
- Spray a wok or large frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the spring onions and stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the peppers and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the courgette, carrot and water chestnuts, toss well and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the light soy sauce and season. Tip into a dish and keep warm.
- Spray the wok with a little more low-calorie cooking spray. Place over a high heat, add the prawn mixture and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, until the prawns are cooked through and pink. Tip the vegetables back into the wok and toss well to combine.
- Divide the noodles between 4 shallow bowls, spoon on the prawn and vegetable mixture, and serve with the lime wedges.
