Tang Hoon Prawn (Glass Vermicelli)冬粉虾

Tang Hoon冬粉 is also called glass vermicelli noodle that is common in Asia countries. The one that I am using is made from green bean. You can cook into tang hoon soup or fried tang hoon. 
This Tang Hoon prawn recipe that I am sharing with you here is one of  my mum-in-law's signature dish . It is easy to cook and nice to eat. This is also a common dish found in the Thai restaurant. Usually it is cooked with crab. But my brilliant mum-in-law replaced it with prawn. She usually cook the prawn with the shell. As the prawn with shell will be more juicy and tang hoon soak with the juice from the seafood also tastier. However, I have choose to remove shell before cook as it is easier for my children.

150 -200g Glass Vermicelli (Tang Hoon)
8 big prawns, without shell, season with salt n pepper.
A thumb size ginger, sliced
2 stalks  spring onions
1 garlic, minced
2 small red onions (shallots),  minced
1Tbsp oil for frying
Some water for soaking vermicelli
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
1 Tbsp Hua Tiao Chew (Chinese cooking wine)
Dash of pepper
1 tsp sesame oil
1- 1 &1/2cup of water, about 240ml or more

Note: please adjust the seasoning to your desired taste.

1. Soak vermicelli in water until it is soft. Remove from water n set aside.  Discard the water.
2. In a corning ware with a lid or a kitchen ware/casserole that can be put over stove fire, pour in all the seasoning including water. Boil over medium fire.
3. Meanwhile in a wok, put oil and fry the red onion n garlic until golden brown. Remove from wok and put the fried shallots n garlic including the oil into above 2.
4. When the mixture is boiled, lower fire and put in the sliced ginger, then vermicelli. Top up with prawns, then spring onion.
Cover with the corning ware lid. Turn to moderate high fire and cook until prawns is cooked. In the process you may add 1/4 cup of hot water if it is too dry n prawn still not cook. Once the prawn is cooked, turn off fire.
5. Serve.
