Glass noodle salad with shrimps
After travelling to Thailand and being infatuated with Thai food, I tood a morning cooking course to learn... it was awesome!! So I tried to put my new "knowledge" into practice and I made my 1st glass noodle salad with some ingredients I brought from Bangkok.
- Glass noodles
- Cherry tomatoes
- Red and green peppers
- Cashew nuts
- Lemon juice (it's better to use lime)
- Soy Sauce
- Fish sauce
- Key lime herbs
Soak thenoodles in cold water for 1/2 hour until soft. Holding a strainer to hold the noodles, dip them into boiling for 1 min. Remove immediately into cold water to stop cooking. Drain well and set aside.
In a saucepan, with a little bit of olive oil, stir fry the onions with srimp and sredded ginger.
In a bowl, mix the glass noodles with the shrimps and all the vegetables sliced or chopped. Add lemon juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, shredded ginger, and sugar. Mix well and test until your preferred taste.
Place the salad on a bed of lettuce and sprinkle some chopped cashew nuts on top. (You can add chillies to make it spicy!)
