Thai Noodles with Cinnamon and Prawns

The first episode of Simply Nigella was on TV. There were a few recipes in it, including the cake we made recently. It also featured this recipe, which conveniently I’d already bought the ingredients for before the show aired.

I had to make a few substitutions (black pepper for white pepper) but nothing too major. Nigella describes this meal as “reassuringly unfamiliar” and that’s a strangely appropriate description. There’s nothing too unusual in this, but the combination of flavours really is something else.

Sparky wasn’t a fan though – he thought that the flavour of cinnamon was too much. Not me though… I lapped up every last drop of the delicious liquor.
