Thai Style Prawn with Glass Noodle

bear naked food thai style prawn with glass noodle

This Thai Style Prawn with Glass Noodle is just one of the many items we would order from a Thai food menu. Honestly, there is nothing complicated to this dish. Apart from using fresh prawn, the combination of soy sauce, oyster sauce creates a flavorful umami-rich taste to the dish, while the prawn and cabbage amp up the natural sweetness. The bean vermicelli tends to soak up the flavor of the sauce, and that’s how it’s supposed to be.

Another key ingredient is black pepper. The dish must smell as good as it looks so the black pepper must come through prominently to qualify as a successful dish.

bean vermicelli

This is bean vermicelli aka glass noodle.

In a saucepan, add in all the ingredients and bring to a gentle boil.

 

In a large pot, add in 2 tbsp oil and sauté the ginger, garlic, white parts of spring onion over medium low heat until fragrant.

 

Turn up heat and add in mushroom and cabbage. Toss well.

 

Place prawns and softened bean vermicelli into the pot and pour in sauce.

 

Mix well and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 5 mins, or until vermicelli is softened.

 

 

Taste and adjust with more seasoning if needed.

The bean vermicelli will continue to absorb the sauce. You could add in a little more chicken stock if it appears too dry.

Bear is my moniker. Naked is how I like my feet to look. Food is something I live to eat (alot). A food recipe blog that makes sense.
