Several notes here to share with you:
Here is a quick rundown of the recipe:
Stir fish sauce, lime juice, lime zest, sweet chili sauce, minced garlic and minced deseeded bird eye chilies in a bowl to mix well and set aside.
Soak the glass noodle in plain water and set aside to soften. Soak the dried shrimps in hot water and set aside to soften. Sliced the red onions, celery hearts and coriander leaves and transfer them into a large bowl. Pluck the mint leaves off their tough stems and discard the stems. Coarsely chop the mint leaves and transfer into the large bowl. Half the mini tomatoes and transfer into the large bowl.
Thinly slice the softened dried shrimps. Transfer them into a bowl and set aside. Insert a sharp knife into the squid tubes and cut through vertically. Flip the squids and cut through the other sides vertically. Then half each of the cut squid tube. Score shallow diagonal cuts in a crisscross pattern on the outer surface of each of the squid pieces. Cut the squid pieces again into bite size after cooking. Remove and discard the prawns head and their shells. Cut along the length of the prawns and remove their intestinal tract.
Heat 2 cups of plain water in the pot over HIGH heat and bring to a boil. Cook the glass noodle for 30secs. Quickly remove the glass noodle with a strainer and kitchen tongs. Transfer the glass noodle into a bowl. Cook the prawns in the boiling water for 1 to 2mins. Remove the prawns with the strainer and kitchen tongs and set aside. Cook the squids in the boiling water for 30secs or until they are cooked (their colour will turn creamy/milky). Be careful not to overcook. Remove the squids with the strainer and kitchen tongs and set aside.
Happy cooking 😉🧡
