  •  ground pepper
  •  1 tablespoon salty Chinese cabbage
  •  1 packet Pressed Tofu
  •  1/2 cup shrimp Optional

Giant Noodle Roll Sauce- Nam Jim Goi Tiew Lohd

  •  2 teaspoons fish sauce
  •  1-3 tablespoon ground fresh chili paste
  •  5 teaspoons sugar
  •  3 tablespoons vinegar
  •  If you use fresh shrimp, peel and de-vein shrimp. If you are using dried shrimp, remember to use salted Chinese cabbage sparingly because there is quite a bit of salt in dried shrimp.
  • For this recipe, either the brown or white pressed tofu will be fine. The tofu should have the texture of mozzarella cheese. Use two pieces, 4 inch x 4 inch x 1 inch. If you love tofu, add more. Slice the tofu into thin pieces.
  •  Cut the rice noodles into 5 inch x 8 inch rectangles. If your noodles were refrigerated, steam them for a few minutes or microwave them, so that they become softer and easier to peel. Otherwise, they can be very difficult to handle and may break.
  • Assembling: Lay the noodles sheet on a plate or large cutting board. Add tofu, shrimp, bean sprout, sliced onion and cilantro and salted Chinese cabbage on the noodles. Sprinkle some black pepper on top. Wrap the noodles around the filling. The ends should be open.
  •  Cooking: There are two ways of cooking the noodles; the traditional way and the microwave way.
  • To steam the noodles: If you have a big steamer that can accommodate a bowl or plate, put the noodles in the dish and steam the whole thing for 5 -7 minutes. You can also put the roll directly in the steamer. Taking the noodles out from the hot steamer requires some maneuvering skill.
  • To microwave the noodles: Place the noodle rolls in a plate and cover the plate and microwave for 6-8 minutes (depending on your microwave.) The noodles should be hot and steamy.
  • Presenting: Sprinkle green onion and cilantro on top of the noodles. Add a teaspoon of garlic oil on top. Sprinkle white pepper on top. Serve hot with the sauce, recipe below. The noodles should be soaked in sauce for maximum taste. Enjoy this delicious healthy dish!
