150g dried vermicelli noodles
250g frozen prawns
1 red chilli, thinly sliced
25g coconut sugar
25g fish sauce
1 tsp alyce’s flavour bomb salt
150g water
1 carrot, grated
1 cucumber, grated
1 lime, juice only
Handful fresh mint, leaves picked
Fried shallots, to serve


  1. Fill TM bowl with 600g room temperature water. Place lid on, then steaming tray on top.
  2. Position steaming mat onto upper steaming tray (see video for more guidance). Place noodles on steaming mat keeping as flat to the mat as possible, then load on prawns, chilli, coconut sugar, fish sauce, flavour bomb salt and water. Steam for 20 minutes, steaming (Varoma) temperature, speed 4.
  3. Using a fork, flip over the ‘nests’ of vermicelli noodles, allowing the top side to soak up the liquid present on the steaming mat. Place the Varoma lid back on top and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  4. After 10 minutes, transfer noodle mixture to a large serving bowl. Add carrot, cucumber, lime juice and mint and mix to combine. Use a fork to separate the noodles out if needed.

Garnish with fried shallots. Delicious served warm immediately, but just as good (if not better!) served chilled straight from the fridge the next day.
