This dish of creamy fish and prawn noodles is the perfect comfort food.

We all know that feeling of coming home after a long day at work, it’s pitch black outside, you are hungry and perhaps cold, and all you want is a filling bowl of something warm and tasty. Am I right?



This time of year I often lean towards winter warmers, like my vine tomato and red onion soup with a hefty kick, or my red pepper chilli sin carne. However, speed must also be of the essence: I don’t want to spend all night cooking. 

This is where my fish and prawn chilli noodles tick all the boxes. Quick and super easy to make, not to mention, cosy and filling. It’s a healthier option, too. Always a bonus in my book. Made with superfoods like fish and prawns, its creaminess does not come from cream, but coconut milk. I used rice noodles, making this meal naturally gluten free, too.

  1. Use any kind of fish. I used up some leftover baked cod for this recipe. You could use fresh, but you would need to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  2. I used rice noodles, but you could use any. Alternatively, you could use your favourite pasta.
