Cucumber Soup with Prawns
Dairy free with chilled leek and pea, this is a cooling summer lunch or light supper.
10 King prawns
1/2 cup cold beer/ cold soda water
1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 Tbs oyster sauce
2.3L unsalted water
450g dried soba noodles
4-5 cups cold water
In a bowl, whisk cold beer, oyster sauce and rice flour.
Coat prawns with flour before dipping in the batter. Deep fry for 10-12 seconds each.
Bring water to a boil in a large pot over medium heat. Add noodles and gently stir before reducing heat to minimum.
Add 1 cup cold water and return to boil. Repeat, adding 3-4 more cups of cold water until noodles are firm but cooked through.
Drain noodles and rinse under cold water.
Divide noodles into bowls and place tempura prawns on top. Garnish with fresh spring onion.
