Cooking instructions


Step 1: Soak the glass noodles in a bowl of cold water for about 15 minutes. Make sure the noodles are completely submerged in the water. Whilst the noodles are soaking, peel the prawns and thinly slice 15g (0.5 oz) of ginger.

Step 2: Place half of the sliced ginger (about 7.5g/0.25 oz), 1 clove of garlic, 4 coriander stalks, and the whole black pepper in a mortar and pestle and crush until you are left with a paste.

Step 3: Coat a non stick pot with some a small amount of cooking oil, and lay the celery leaf and remaining 7.5g/0.25 oz of sliced ginger on the base of the pan. (Place the leaf celery leaf on top of the ginger)

Step 4: Drain the glass noodles, and add the sugar, oyster sauce, fish sauce, and soy sauce. Mix everything together thoroughly. Then add the paste from your mortar and pestle, and mix everything together.

Step 5: Place the noodles in your pot on top of the ginger and celery leaf. Gently pat the noodles down to create a flat top. Follow by laying your peeled prawns on top of the noodles.

Step 6: Place the pot on a very low heat, and place a lid on top of the pot. Cook until the prawns are pink. This should take about 10 minutes. Avoid taking the lid off too frequently as all of the steam will escape.

Recipe also works well with lobster or crab. You can also line the base of the pot with bacon, this is a great way to protect the bottom of the noodles from browning too much in the pot. Would also work well being baked in the oven with a casserole pot if you don’t feel comfortable using the method we used.
