we had this for appetizer last night with dinner.



Ingredients:
2 bundles of Glass noodles(Tang Hoon)
1 cucumber(shredded)
10 cherry tomatoes(quartered)
10 Tiger prawns(devein, shells removed, cut into 5 sections per piece)
2 large squids(cut into rings)
1 tbsp grated Lemon rind
1 cup fresh coriander leaves and stalks, chopped(Cilantro)
1 cup Torch Ginger(chopped)

Seasoning:
juice from 5 large Green limes
2 tbsp Fish Sauce
3 tbsp Palm Sugar(melted)
2 tbsp grated green lime rind

chopped Roasted Peanuts(optional)

Method:
1. Mixed seasonings together. set aside.
2. Blanched noodles in hot water till it turn transparent. Drained.
3. Cook prawns, squids in hot water for 3 mins. Drained.
3. Using a large Salad bowl(or big pot will do), add all ingredients in it.
4. Drizzle the seasonings on top and toss to mix evenly.
5. Leave in the fridge to cool for 30 to 45 mins.
6. Serve cold. Sprinkly peanuts and grated lemon rind on top.

Notes:
You can make this a spicy noodle salad by adding 1 to 2 pcs of Chilli Padi(chopped) and 2 pcs of Shallots(sliced). I have omitted these 2 as my 2 girls cannot stomach raw shallots and also they are not in favour of Chilli padi too.

For the vegetables, you can add other varieties like Jambu fruit, green mango, green(unripe) papaya, star fruits, etc.

Hi Gina,

I'm thinking of making this for my Christmas party - major panic mode on to plan it!

May I know what are the above 2 ingredients? And where I can get them?

Thanks,
annie

Annie

Torch Ginger looks like this:



You can get this from wet market, vegetables section.

Palm Sugar is the English name of Gula Melaka. Gula Melaka is also sold in Wet market or supermarket. At supermarket, its often kept together with the dried foodstuff area. Things like Preserved Mushrooms, Red Beans, Chai Por.

I made this a few times for our family home parties. Always gone within minutes. I love sour food!

This recipe is learned from a Thai friend of mine, if u likes sour and spicy food u will like it.

Thai Glass Noodles Salad (Tang Hoon Salad)

15 pcs prawns - shelled and cut into halve
2 pcs squids - cut into pieces
200g minced meat
2 pkt glass noodles (tang hoon) - soak in water to soften
1 large onion
10 cloves garlic (preferably from thai supermarket those marinated one)
2 stalks spring onions
1 stalk coriander leaves
8 limes
3 green lemons
5 chilli padi (add more if u prefer more spicy)
1 tsp cornflour
5 tsp fish sauce

1. Marinate minced meat with corn flour and 2 tsp fish sauce. Pan fry till cook. Leave aside.
2. Boil water, add glass noodles to cook for 3-5 mins, sieve out and put into cold water (tap water will do).
3. Add prawns and squids into hot water and cook, sieve it up to cool.
4. Squeeze out the juices of the green lemons and limes.
5. Chop chilli padi, garlic, onion, coriander leaves and spring onions.
6. Put everything into a big bowl and add remaining fish sauce. Mix well.
7. Serve cool.

*Adjust fish sauce and lime juices according to your tastes.

thanks for your version too. However, with minced meat, it doesn't take very good when served cold or cool.

squids and prawns are fine. I served mine cold..from the fridge. Wink
