Steamed Tofu with Prawns and Glass Noodles

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

When I saw this on 3 Hungry Tummies, it looked so so delicious.
When I served this for dinner, everybody says it's so delicious.
Credits to 3 hungry tummies for creating this yummylicious dish.

I did some minor adaptations, by lining the base with glass noodles instead of wrapping the tofu with it, so that the glass noodles will have juices from the tofu and prawns because glass noodles need a lot of liquid during the cooking process. And I also used soft tofu, instead of firm tofu.

It's actually very simple, not much rules here.

Steamed tofu with Prawns and Glass Noodles
Recipe source : 3 Hungry Tummies

As much soft tofu as you like,
As many prawns as per pieces of tofu.
As much glass noodles as you like, just soak them until they get soft before you use them.
Garlic oil for drizzling
Light soy sauce for flavouring
Sliced spring onion for garnish, and definately extra aroma and flavour.

1. Soak glass noodles until soft, Drain and snip shorter. Place in steaming dish.
2. Cut tofu into prefered sizes. Arrange on top of glass noodles
3. Arrange one piece of prawn on each tofu.
4. Steam on high heat for 10 minutes.
5. Drizzle with garlic oil and light soy sauce and top with sliced spring onions.

25 lovely notes:

You're welcomed

Some will prefer without the garnish, those who hates spring onions, LOL.

True, it's very simple, yet looks impressive

hi wendy. =) Very nice recipe, but I was wondering how do you cut the spring onion to look so nice for garnish? Thanks!

WendyinKK December 9, 2011 at 10:38 AM  

Slice it vertically, then soak in cold water :)

May I know what's the tiny bits on top of the tofu? Is it fried garlic?

WendyinKK March 14, 2012 at 8:32 PM  

As said in the method step (5).
Yes, fried garlic.

lyn,  March 16, 2012 at 8:06 PM  

How do you prepare the garlic oil?

Is there any difference to drizzle the soy sauce after steaming and before steaming?

My husband suggests adding some cut chillies on top of the tofu...haha

WendyinKK March 17, 2012 at 2:41 PM  

1. Just saute the chopped garlic with oil until golden.
2. Yes. If u use the soy sauce before, your tofu will be stained, plus the water from tofu will leak out even more due to osmosis. If you add soy before the oil, it will also stain. So up to you.
3. Yes you can, but after steaming please.

Does the garlic oil need to be very hot or can the garlic oil be prepared few days earlier? Thanks !

jennybchu April 18, 2018 at 5:09 AM  

Looks amazing and amazingly simple! One thing I'd suggest is to de-vein the prawns.
