Prawn and chicken vermicelli salad


I made this seafood rice vermicelli salad and it's not just an appetiser or starter  for me.   It doubled up as another one-dish meal for my dinner and  although  it's light, it can be filling too ..... and what's more, it's really delicious!










This is indeed very scrumptuous and the plus point is there's isn't much oil in it.  Just what I like.  What about you? 

Ingredients
  • 100 gm rice vermicelli, soaked
  • 1 chicken leg, skin removed and deboned
  • 250 gm prawns
  • 1 small green capsicum, sliced thinly
  • 1 cucumber, seeded, trimmed
  • 1 medium size onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 bird eye chilli
  • 2  tsp finely shredded turmeric leaves
  • Chopped garlic and oil
  • Salt
Dressing    (Mix together)
  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 3 Tbsp limau kasturi/calamansi juice
  • 1 Tbsp warm water
  • 5 tsp brown sugar
Preparation
  1. In a pot of boiling water add in some salt, poach the chicken till cooked through, drain and shred the meat.  Set aside.
  2. Add in the prawns whole and once the shells turn red, dish out, remove the shells, devein and slice them into halves.
  3. Cook the rice vermicelli in some boiling water, drain and cut into random lengths.
  4. Place the vermicelli, prawns and shredded chicken in a large serving bowl.
  5. Mix in the dressing, onion, capsicum, chilli and turmeric leaves.  Toss gently to combine.  Top up with 4 tsp of chopped garlic and oil.
  6. Serve immediately.

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕
