Prawns cooked in glass noodles : กุ้งอบวุ้นเส้น

I do love this food. I often cook "Gung ob wun sen" (how we say in Thai) for us and the last time was yesterday. We ate all in a flash. It was really heavenly and I can eat it over and over again without getting bored with this easy food.

Ingredients : for 2 persons

80g glass noodles
1 tbsp. dark sweet soy sauce
6 prawns
50g streaky pork
2 green onions
2 coriander roots
3-4 slices of ginger
2 cloves garlic
3-4 tbsp. chicken stock
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsp. oyster sauce
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tbsp. shao shing rice wine
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. vegetable oil

Instructions :

Soak glass noodles in hot water, drain and put them in the bowl. Pour dark sweet soy sauce over the glass noodles, mix well and set aside. Mix chicken stock, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, shao shing, sesame oil and pepper together, set aside.

Clean prawns and make an incision on the back. Cut streaky pork in about 2 cm. Peel garlic and cut in half or quarter. Wash green onions and cut in long strips. Wash coriander roots and smash.

Heat vegetable oil in a pan on medium heat. When oil is hot, put sliced ginger, garlic, green onions and coriander roots in a pan. Stir fry until fragrant, turn off the heat.

Line streaky pork in the bottom of the pot and put half of fried vegetable on the streaky pork. Then line half of prawns on vegetables. Pour half of mixing sauce over the prawns and cover them with half of glass noodles. Then line the rest of prawns over the noodles, put the rest vegetable on the prawns and cover with the rest noodles. Finally, pour all mixing sauce over the glass noodles.

Cover the pot and place it on the stove. Cook on low heat about 20 minutes or until prawns's shells turn red. Turn off the heat.

Take the pot out of the stove and serve warm. Wish you all enjoy your meal.
