Crab & Prawn Vermicelli Noodle Salad
Make restaurant-quality Thai food at home with Thai Taste
If you love Thai food and you’re a whizz in the kitchen then you’ll love the award winning Thia Taste range of authentically Thia ingredients available in all major supermarkets. Thia Taste recently got in touch with me to see if I would be up for recreating a dish created by Thai restauranteur Seb Holmes. As my family and I really enjoy Thia food I accepted their challenge and they kindly sent me a box full of ingredients so I could start creating restaurant quality food at home.
Seb Holmes created four authentic Thia recipes using ingredients from the Thia Taste range, my favourite of the bunch is the Crab & Prawn Vermicelli Noodle Salad. It’s gluten free and contains three of my favourite ingredients noodles, lime juice and of course coconut milk!
As you can see the dish looks delicious. As I’m not a fan of crab meat I left it out and instead used a whole bag of king prawns which tasted beautiful as they turn golden in the chilli and turmeric paste.
To be honest the first time I made this dish it turned out more like a soup - as let’s just say I never read the instructions on how to do the noodles properly and they turned into a sloppy mess. It still tasted great but obviously it had a different consistency, so on my second attempt I cheated and used already made noodles that you can find in the fresh/fruit & veg aisle in most supermarkets and it turned out perfect.
The Mother was impressed and asked for a second serving, so considering she spent a month last Christmas in Thialand with a Thia family eating authentic Thia food, I think I did a good job (luckily she didn't see my first attempt!)
