Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Poach our meats: cook minced pork and prawns  ( No need to do this, if you use cooked prawn) in boiling water. Remove them out from boiling water when they just cook, don’t leave them too long otherwise,prawns will shrink and minced pork will be tough. Take them out and put them aside

Step 2

cook a pack of glass noodles (50 grams) in boiling/hot water for 2-3 minutes until they are soft. Leave them aside.

Step 3

Make Yum sauce by adding same amount of fish sauce, lime juice, sugar and warm water. I used two-three tablespoons each for 200 grams of prawns and 100 grams of minced pork. Add some chillies (up to your taste). Mix them together.

Step 4

assemble our prawns + minced pork, glass noodles, yum sauce in the same bowl. Add tomatoes, coriander, cucumbers, shallots or red onions, and toasted peanuts. Toss them together in a big salad bowl.

It’s done and yummy.
