Print Recipe


  • 500 gr dried thin vermicelli noodles
  • 300 gr large shrimp peeled, deveined
  • 4 dried bean curd slices optional
  • 3 Tbsp cooking oil divided


  • 5 cloves garlic peeled, finely minced
  • 5 stalks green onion separate green and white parts


  • 1 carrot julienned
  • 2 cups cabbage shredded



Things to prepare before cooking:

  • Soak the noodles in water for 2 minutes 
  • Then drain off water and set aside before you start cooking. This is such thin noodles and doesn't require long soaking
  • Soak the dried bean curd slices (if using) in hot water until soft. Separate the white and green part of the green onion. Cut into about 3-inch pieces
  • Mix all ingredients for seasonings together and set aside


  • Preheat a large wok or skillet over high heat. Add 1 Tbsp of cooking oil. Add the shrimp and stir fry until they turn pink and cooked through. Dish out and set aside
  • Bring the wok or skillet back to hot. Add the rest of the cooking oil. Add garlic and white part of scallions and stir fry until aromatic, about 1 minute
  • Add carrots and cabbage and stir fry for about 3 minutes. 
  • Add bean curd sticks (if using)
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of chicken stock 
  • cover with a lid and cook for the next 2 minutes or until cabbage is soft
  • Uncover the lid and add noodles and seasonings. Add the rest of the chicken stock. Stir to mix everything. Bring to a simmer and cover with a lid to let the noodles absorb the stock
  • Add the shrimp back. Have a final taste and add more soy sauce to your taste if needed
  • Scatter in the green part of green onion and stir to mix everything. Turn off the heat. The residual heat will continue to soften the green onion
  • Serve immediately with pickled green chili or your favorite sambal chili
