Recipe: Prawn & Potato Stir Fry

A while ago I was contacted by the team at Best British Bloggers to ask if I wanted to take part in a great cook club challenge for Instaprint, to celebrate the fact that you can now use their online service to print up your own recipe cards. The idea was that we all contributed a recipe to the box, and we cooked another bloggers creation at home. I chose the Prawn & Potato Stir Fry from lifestyle blog Oh So Amelia, and just adapted it only slightly for what I had in the house at the time. I shared it with my Father Wednesday lunch time.


To be perfectly honest, I was very dubious about the idea of using potatoes in a stir fry, especially alongside the rice noodles. I was worried about it the whole way through cooking, as was my Father who assisted, who is the Wok master in our house. But, it was in fact delicious and made for a very filling meal, something I’d really recommend as a quick week night supper. 

  • 1 Large Potato
  • 1 Yellow or Green Pepper
  • 3 Spring Onions
  • 2 Large Handfuls Cooked Prawns
  • 1 Green Chilli
  • Large Pinch Dried Chilli Flakes
  • Groundnut Oil
  • Soy Sauce
  • 100g (4oz) Rice Noodles

Cook the rice noodles as per the packets instructions. Heat a large splash of the oil in a wok. Add the potato, sliced really thinly for a couple of minutes until they start to brown. Add the chilli flakes, then the pepper and the green chilli, again both sliced thinly. Cook until the pepper has started to soften and add the spring onions sliced, the prawns and the drained noodles. Heat the prawns through and season to taste with soy sauce. Serve with a sprinkling of freshly chopped coriander if you wish.

Do any of you use a recipe box to keep all of your recipes straight and all together in one place. I’m going to put my family recipes I don’t already have a record of here on the blog in the box the Best British Bloggers team sent me alongside my new set of recipe cards, as well as all of the recipes I pull out of (mostly Waitrose) magazines that I want to try at some stage.
