Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


  • Rice Noodles – 1 pack
  • Granulated sugar – ¼ cup
  • Plain rice vinegar – 2 tablespoons
  • Soy Sauce (or tamari for gluten free) – 2 tablespoons
  • Fish sauce – 1 tablespoon
  • Paprika – 2 teaspoons
  • Garlic infused olive oil – 2 tablespoons
  • Green pepper
  • Green cabbage (optional)
  • 400g (or 1 pack) uncooked prawns
  • 1 egg
  • Coriander to garnish (optional)
  • Sesame seeds to garnish (optional)


This recipe moves quickly, so it’s best to have all your ingredients ready beforehand!

  • Start by checking the cooking instructions on the rice noodle packet; they’ll likely need to be boiled, so get the water boiling if necessary.
  • In a separate dish, whisk together the sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce, and paprika.
  • Heat the garlic-infused oil in a pan or wok over medium heat. Once hot, add the chopped bell pepper and cabbage, and cook for about five minutes until the veggies soften.
  • While they’re cooking, start cooking the noodles. Once cooked, drain them.
  • Once the veggies are soft, add the prawns and cook for 2 to 4 minutes, until they turn opaque pink and are almost cooked through. Add the whisked sauce and cook for around a minute, until fully cooked and the sugar is dissolved.
  • Reduce the heat to low.
  • Stir in the noodles and the chopped green ends of the spring onions, then remove from the heat. Optionally, heat the remaining teaspoon of garlic-infused oil over medium-high heat in a small nonstick skillet. Once hot, add the egg and cook, scrambling with a silicone spatula, until done. Stir this into the noodle mixture.
  • Serve warm, topped with optional cilantro and sesame seeds. 
  • There you have it, a quick and easy low fodmap prawn pad thai
