    Hello there,
    I am off the SW forum but wonder if anyone has an old WW cookbook who can help me.
    I did WW a few years ago (2003) so reckon that was 1-2-3 and had loads of cookbooks. I remember a recipe for chilli prawn noodles which I think I could use on SW but I can't find the recipe anywhere.
    I know they do a stirfry prawns now. But this one had, apart from the 3 obvious ingrediants, carrots ? soy sauce...I just can't remember what else.
    Really would appreciate if anyone has the 123 cookbook. Or I did also have a boxset of 4 books - it might have come from one of them.

    No problem at all....

    heat a non-stick wok until hot then stir in the carrot, pepper, sunflower oil, garlic and chilli.
    cook briskly, stirring and tossing for 2 minutes.
    meanwhile soak the egg noodles in boiling water, according to pack instructions. drain and pile on a warm plate.
    mix the soy sauce, sherry, sesame oil and sugar into the vegetables. cook for 1 minute then add the prawns.
    stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until piping hot, season to taste and serve with the noodles
