Prawn Pad Thai with Courgetti

If you eat this in a Thai restaurant a single portion can contain a whopping 600 to 900kcals! However, our delicious low-carb version, made with courgetti instead of regular noodles, is low in carbs and only 200 kcals per serving.


  1. Spiralise the courgettes using blade C of a spiraliser. If you don’t have one, you can use a julienne peeler, a mandolin slicer or an ordinary potato peeler, but you will have thicker ‘noodles’.
  2. Lightly spray a wok or deep-frying pan with oil and set over a high heat. Add the garlic, spring onions and chilli and stir-fry briskly for 1 minute. Add the prawns and stir-fry for 1–2 minutes until they turn pink.
  3. Add the courgettes and tomatoes and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until warmed through and the courgettes are just tender but still retain a little ‘bite’.
  4. Push everything to the side of the pan and pour the beaten egg into the middle. Cook for 1 minute, stirring all the time, until it scrambles. Stir into the courgette and prawn mixture.
  5. Add the lime zest and juice, nam pla, soy sauce and bean sprouts. Stir-fry for a minute. Stir in the coriander and remove from the heat.
  6. Divide the mixture between two shallow serving bowls and eat immediately.

Tips: If you don’t have raw prawns, use ready-cooked ones instead. If they are frozen, defrost thoroughly before using.

If you’re on a low-salt diet, use low-sodium Thai fish sauce and soy sauce.
