THAI GLASS NOODLE SALAD (YUM WOON SEN)

PREP TIME

15 minutes

COOK TIME

10 minutes

SERVES

2 as a stand-alone dish
(4 as part of a Thai meal)

Ingredients

80g (about 3 oz) dried glass noodles (also known as bean thread or cellophane noodles

200g (7 oz) pork mince

100g (3.5 oz) peeled prawns (shrimp)

½ small red onion, sliced

¼ cup spring onion (scallions), cut into 3cm batons

¼ cup roughly chopped coriander (cilantro)

chilli flakes, to taste (optional)

 

Dressing:

3 tbsp fish sauce

3 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp white sugar

1 long red chilli

Steps

Soak the glass noodles in room temperature water for 5 minutes or until softened slightly.

For the dressing, whisk together fish sauce, lime juice and sugar. Use a mortar and pestle to pound the red chilli into a rough paste. Alternatively, finely chopped the red chilli. Add chilli to the dressing and set aside until ready to serve.

Cook soaked noodles in boiling water for 2 minutes or until softened and cooked through. Remove noodles from the water with tongs or a slotted spoon and place in a large bowl.

Place a sieve into the simmering noodle cooking water. Add pork into the sieve and cook, agitating until pork is cooked through. Drain pork using the sieve and add the pork into the noodles. Repeat this process with the prawns.
