Baked Prawns and Vermicelli
Baked Vermicelli Prawns (or Baked Prawns and Vermicelli)
This is quite easy to cook by microwave, (or by oven).I gave this recipe to my husband (to cook when he's alone), but until now have not seen any result yet.It's one of our family's favorite dish, and sometimes my kids like to eat it without any rice, like they're eating dried noodles.This dish is maybe of Thai and Chinese origin. In Thailand it is a popular dish in many seafood restaurants, (and sometimes also in Singapore)
For 4 persons
- 4 stalks coriander leave with roots
- 6 cm old ginger peeled and smashed
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 tsp ground coriander seeds
- 1 tsp ground white pepper (some time I use black peppercorn, I think it’s more fragrant than white pepper)
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- ½ tsp dark soy sauce
- 100 g vermicelli, soak in warm water until soft and drained
- ½ kg mid prawns (if you like more prawns, then put more)
1.If you cook by oven. Preheat the oven to 180 degree C (350 degree F)
2.Cut the root off the coriander stalks about 4 cm from the bottom. Clean the roots, then smash them with the back of cleaver. Chop the coriander leave and set aside for garnishing.
3.Mix vegetable oil, ground coriander seeds, ground pepper, dark soy sauce, fish sauce, chicken stock and vermicelli in the large blow. Stir until mix together
4.In the casserole or clay-pot (can put in the oven or microwave) place the coriander roots, ginger, and garlic in the bottom. Put the vermicelli mix onto it and then put prawns on top.
5.Bring to bake about 10-15 minutes until the prawns are pink (exact time depends on the size of prawns) If you cook by Microwave also the same time too.
6.Garnish with chopper coriander leaves and serve hot.
