Chef Wan’s Peranakan Kerabu Recipe (Prawn Mango Noodle Salad)

I have not posted a food recipe for a while and I am going to repost this special Peranakan Kerabu recipe by Chef Wan. He created this dish at his home a few years ago during Ramadhan and I took the video of the kerabu cooking demo. Video is as below in HD (High Definition) and the recipe is as below.

Check out the video below.

• 500 g freshwater prawns
• 200 g glass noodles
• 2 mango, 1 ripe, 1 unripe, peeled and finely sliced
• 2 thai lime leaves, finely sliced
• 15 g chopped coriander leaves
• 2 tbsp chopped mint leaves
• 55 g crisp fried shallots
• 60 ml fish sauce, see Cook’s note below
• 1 lime, juice only
• 1 pinches sugar
• salad greens, to serve
• 85 g peanuts, roasted and ground, to garnish
For the paste
• 6 red chillies
• 225 g dried shrimps, soaked in hot water and drained
• 2 tbsp shrimp paste, toasted
• 3 cloves garlic, peeled
• 3 tbsp grated palm sugar
• 2 tomatoes, chopped
1. For the finely pounded paste: put all the ingredients into a mortar and grind with the pestle until they form a fine paste. Alternatively, process all the ingredients in a food processor until finely ground.

  1. Peel the prawns and blanch briefly in a saucepan of boiling water until they just change colour. Refresh under cold water and drain well.
  2. Pour boiling water over the glass noodles and soak until softened and translucent. Run under cold water for 3 minutes to remove any excess starch. Drain well.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the prawns, noodles, finely pounded paste, mango, herbs, fried shallots, nam pla and lime juice and mix well. Season to taste with salt and a pinch of sugar. Add more lime juice to taste.
  4. To serve, line a serving dish with salad greens, put the prawn and mango mixture on top and garnish with ground peanuts.
