Prep Time: 10    Cooking Time: 10    Serves: 4 as a starter
  1. 200g dried bean thread noodles
  2. 500g large green prawns , shelled
  3. 1 bunch fresh coriander
  4. 1 cup fish or vegetable stock

  1. Place noodles in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water and stand for about 5 minutes or until tender. Drain. Cover to keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, finely chop roots of coriander. Coarsely chop leaves.
  3. Place stock, Fountain Hoi Sin Sauce, Fountain Soy Sauce, sugar, garlic and coriander roots in a medium saucepan. Stir over a low heat until sugar dissolves. Add prawns. Bring to the boil. Simmer, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until prawns are just cooked.
  4. Divide noodles among four serving bowls. Top with prawn and sauce mixture. Sprinkle with coriander leaves. Garnish with chilli and serve with lime wedges.
  5. Tips: Bean thread noodles are also called cellophane or glass noodles and are made from mung bean flour. If unavailable, substitute with rice vermicelli. To serve this as a main course, double the recipe and add 100g thinly sliced mushrooms with the prawns. Stir through 100g bean sprouts just before serving.
