Recipe: Noodles with Shrimps and Scallops

I'd like to share with you this very simple and easy-to-cook noodle recipe my Tita Cyn shared with me.

What you need:

2 tablespoons Olive Oil
Crushed Garlic
125 grams Vermicelli Rice Noodles/Sotanghon (soak in water to soften, then strain)
Lime (to taste)
Salt & Pepper (to taste)

What you need to do:

1. Saute garlic in olive oil.

2. Add the scallops and prawns/shrimps. Cook for 5-10 minutes.

3. Add the vermicelli rice noodles (sotanghon).

4. Stir in lime, salt and pepper to taste.

5. Leave for another 10 minutes until noodles are cooked.

Serves 3-4 people.


1. You can use other oils like canola or sunflower.

2. This only took me 20 minutes to cook, very time-friendly for working wifeys like me :)

3. Scallops are a good source of vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium and pottasium. {source}

4. Prawns/Shrimps are a good source of selenium, vitamin D, vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids. {source}
