Published August 19, 2010 by Mary Jane

Okies, so I went and bought a packet of vermicelli from Asian grocery store – thinking it was rice noodles, even when soaking the noodles it looks like rice noodles however, once I started stir frying it – it became clear and turn into vermicelli…..clear noodles, can’t still tasted pretty good, just a little surprised why I didn’t pick it up when I bought the packet πŸ™‚ so here it is…

Stir fried prawns vermicelli


packet of vermicelli
bunch of prawns
some spring onions
minced garlic
1 table spoon of soya sauce
1 table spoon of black caramel sauce
some left over roast chicken pieces


1. Peel and devein the prawns and leaving the tails on if you like. Soak the packet of vermicelli in hot water until the noodles is soft and drain and leave it aside. pour some oil on the pan, and chuck in minced garlic and some sliced spring onion (leave 1/2 of them behind for later use). Then chuck in your left over roast chicken pieces (I had them left over from my roast chook from woolies – but you can use chicken thighs or chicken breast – I was just lazy)

2. Then chuck in the vermicelli, add soya sauce, black caramel sauce (you can also add oyster sauce as well) and stir fry for a little longer until all ingredient incorporated if you find the noodles are alittle dry add some water and then chuck in the prawns (don’t cook them too early as prawns overcooked becomes chewy) and then to finish it off add the rest of the sliced spring onions and there you have it delicious stir fried prawns vermicelli and if you’re like me into chillies make sure you throw some in as well πŸ™‚
