Directions

  1. Put mung bean noodles in a bowl and pour in lukewarm water to cover. Let soak until soft and pliable (about 15 minutes). Drain.
  2. Add noodles to a large pot of boiling water. Reduce to medium heat; cook until noodles are plump and glasslike (3 to 5 minutes). Drain in a colander; rinse with cold water; drain again.
  3. Cut into 3- or 4-inch lengths. Chill.
  4. Pour oil into a hot wok or skillet. Add chicken; saute until it loses its pink color. Break into small morsels. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool.
  5. Mix together chile, lime juice, nam pla, sugar, shallots and cilantro; pour over noodles and mix thoroughly. Add the chicken, shrimp and chilled noodles; mix well.
  6. Serve on a bed of thinly shredded lettuce.
  7. Garnish with the optional crisp-fried shallots.

Very good and easy. I used no oil and a non-stick pan.

This is excellent. I love cellophane noodles so this recipe was a natural for me to tag. I did ease up a bit on the pepper but the flavors just came together so nicely. Thanks!
