Method

Mix pork mince, egg, Chinese 5 spice and coriander stems in a large bowl. Roll into meatballs (about 1 tbs each). Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Lightly spray with olive oil spray. Cook the meatballs for 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally, or until golden and cooked through.

Meanwhile, place the noodles in a heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to soak for 5 minutes, drain and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, combine noodles, carrot, bean sprouts, zucchini, mint, coriander and chilli. Combine the fish sauce, sugar, lime juice and oil in a small bowl. Pour over the dressing and toss to coat.

Divide the noodle salad among serving bowls and top with the meatballs. Serve with lime wedges.
