My bang bang prawn bibimbap is a super yummy, veg packed Korean inspired dish that takes a little time to prep (lots of chopping involved but I quite enjoy that) and replaces the typical rice base of a bibimbap with spicy stir fried noodles. 

The perfect dish when you need something a bit more healthy in-between the upcoming festive indulgence!



  • About 2 tbsp sesame oil divided
  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 package precooked egg noodles
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce, divided
  • 2 tsp Sriracha hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 courgette, cut into matchsticks
  • 1-2 carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 cup shitake mushrooms,  sliced 
  • 1 cup red cabbage, chopped
  • 1 package bean sprouts
  • 1 cup kimchi, chopped
  • 1/2 cup spring onions, sliced
  • 2 eggs

  • 2-3 tbsp Olive oil for frying
  • 250g uncooked king prawns
  • ½ cup light mayo
  • 4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha


  • In a medium-sized frying pan, heat 1 tsp sesame oil over med-high heat. 
  • Add each of the veggies (courgettes, carrots, mushrooms, cabbage and bean sprouts) and 1 tsp soy sauce one at a time, cooking for 2-3 min until softened. 
  • For instance, you will stir fry the courgette for a couple minutes, then place separately in a small bowl and continue these steps with all veggies listed until each is cooked.
  • Meanwhile, mix light mayo, sweet chilli sauce and sriracha together. 
  • Set aside as the Bang Bang sauce. 
  • Heat 2-3 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over med-high heat.
  • Fry prawn for 2-3 min per side until cooked, then remove from heat and let them drain on a paper towel lined plate. 
  • Toss in Bang Bang sauce until well-coated.
  • Deglaze large frying pan, then add 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp sesame oil. 
  • Add garlic and sauté for 10 seconds over med-high heat. 
  • Add noodles, remaining soy sauce (should be a couple tbsp) and sriracha, stir frying for 5-7 min until noodles are softened. 
  • Divide noodles evenly among bowls.
  • Add 1 tbsp olive oil to the large frying pan and fry the 2 eggs over med-low heat, carefully ensuring that they don't overcook. 
  • When yolk is still mildly runny, remove from heat and place on top of noodles.
  • Add about 1/4 cup veggies (or about a handful) to each bowl, including kimchi and spring onions. 
  • Add bang bang prawns and enjoy!
