Baked Shrimps With Glass Noodles (tanghoon)



Soak glass noodles in warm water, for 15mins or so.
Do not let it get too mushy.
Preheat oven to 180C/ 350F.
Cut the roots off the cilantro stalks, about 2" from the bottom.
Clean the roots, then smash with back of a cleaver.
Chop the cilantro leaves and set aside for garnishing.
Heat oil in a skillet or flame-proof casserole dish and saute the garlic, cilantro roots, ginger, ground coriander seeds and pepper for 5 mins until fragrant.
Add chicken stock, fish sauce, dark soy sauce and glass noodles.
Bring to boil, then turn off the heat.
Transfer mixture to a baking dish (if not using a flame-proof casserole).
Add the shrimps and bake for approx 10 mins, covered, until shrimps are pink (the exact time depends on the size of the shrimps).
Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot.
