Vermicelli Noodle Bowl Recipe

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
  • 2 skewers
  • 8 medium shrimp, with shells
  • 1 (8 ounce) package rice vermicelli noodles
  • 1 cup finely chopped lettuce
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 English cucumber, cut into 2-inch matchsticks
  • ¼ cup finely chopped pickled carrots
  • ¼ cup finely chopped diakon radish
  • ¼ cup crushed peanuts
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped Thai basil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

Directions

1.In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, fish sauce, sugar, lime juice, garlic, and red pepper flakes; leave aside.

2.In a small skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and simmer, stirring, for about 8 minutes, until softened and beginning to caramelize.

3.Set an outside grill over medium heat and give the grates a quick oiling. Put four shrimp on a skewer and grill for one to two minutes on each side, or until the shrimp are pink and have a charred exterior. Put aside.

4.Heat up a big saucepan of water until it boils. Cook the vermicelli noodles for 12 minutes, or until they become tender. After draining, rinse the noodles under cold water while stirring to separate them.

5.Put cooked noodles in one half of each serving bowl and add bean sprouts and lettuce to the other half to assemble the vermicelli bowl. Add carrots, cucumbers, daikon, peanuts, cilantro, Thai basil, mint, and caramelized shallots to the top of each bowl. Serve with the sauce and shrimp skewers on the side. Before eating, pour the sauce over the top and toss well to coat.
