Fuel My Friday: Reece's Chicken and Prawn Noodles

7 Aug 2020

Triple world champion Reece Dunn is ready to serve up a delicious #FuelMyFriday recipe that is his go-to meal at home and when eating out too.

Reece enjoyed a stunning debut season on the international stage in 2019, culminating in him winning three golds, one silver and recording a trio of world records at September's World Para-Swimming Championships in London. 

With the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games now pushed back by 12 months, preparations are very much ongoing for the biggest competition of them all. So what will Reece be using as one his regular recipes to cook up ahead of training sessions? Over to him...

This is one of those meals where I don't necessarily follow an exact recipe, I just go with it, really. It's simple, tastes so good - plus it's my go-to at Wagamamas when we go there!

"Prawns are not only a great lean source of protein to help build and repair muscle tissue, but also one of the richest sources of selenium.  This mineral acts as a powerful antioxidant in the body which helps to keep your cells healthy."
