Noodles with prawns and edamame beans and spicy lemon dressing

Refreshingly clean and filling is what I had in mind with this dish. I do love udon especially with a hot broth topped with tempura. But I thought I would pair it back for tonight's meal. Pepe and I were in agreement, perfect quick dinner with a bit of kick.
