Sotanghon in Coconut Milk

150 grams Sapporo Long Kow Vermicelli (sotanghon)
2-3 pcs eggs
200 grams raw prawns (peeled and copped, head and tail removed)
350 ml coconut milk
60 grams chives (cut into 2.5 cm length) sotanghon coconut milk
2 shallots (finely sliced)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon patis (fish sauce)
handful of fresh beans sprout


  • Soak Sapporo Long Kow Vermicelli (sotanghon) in hot water for five minutes, drain. Set aside. In a saucepan, cook coconut milk, shallots, and chives over a medium heat.
  • Add prawns and keep simmering for a couple of minutes until the prawn turns pink. Season with patis (fish sauce), lemon juice and sugar.
  • Remove half of sauce from pan and set aside. Meanwhile add sotanghon to the remaining sauce in pan and stir fry for a few minutes until the sotanghon are cooked and well mixed with the sauce.
  • Transfer the sotanghon into serving plate and top with the remaining sauce and serve with bean sprouts.
  • Oil the pan with a thick coat of oil. Put the beaten egg to make a thin omelet. Once cooked, removed from the pan and roll into a thin cylinder and cut across into thin strips. This dish can be greatly enhanced by topping it with shredded omelet.
