Author's Notes

If you can’t find chinese sesame paste, you can substitute it with peanut butter with 1 teaspoon of sesame oil. Do not substitute sesame paste 1:1 with Tahini as that is a completely different flavour If you can’t find Roasted Rice Powder, you can make this at home by taking glutinous/sticky rice and lightly toasting it over the frying pan until brown, then grind it up into a powder.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a heatproof bowl, add the Vermicelli Noodles (1/2 package) and pour boiling water over them. Make sure you cover all the noodles with the water. Use a lid or a plate to cover the bowl to keep the heat in. Follow time according to package directions.
Step 2
Strain the noodles through a strainer or sieve after they are pliable and feel soft, then put them back in the bowl and quickly cover with a towel to steam them for another 3 minutes.
Step 3
Check it’s readiness by taste testing! If it’s not done and it’s no longer hot, add hot water back in and repeat steps 2 and 3. Once it’s done, portion a bundle into the serving bowl.
Step 4
Place the Carrot (1), Cucumber (1/2), Pickled Daikon Radish (1 cup) Bean Sprouts (1 cup), and Lettuce Leaf (3) into the bowl with the vermicelli noodles.
Step 5
In a small bowl, combine the Shrimp (12) with Rice Powder (1 tablespoon), juice from the Lime (1), Granulated Sugar (1 teaspoon), Fresh Ginger (3 slice), Garlic (1 clove), and Fish Sauce (1/2 tablespoon) (plus 1 tsp) and marinate it for 10-15 minutes.
Step 6
Once the shrimp has marinated for 10-15 minutes, remove the ginger and the garlic from the shrimp so they don’t burn on the grill. Skewer up the shrimp.
Step 7
Set the grill to high heat, and when it has come to temperature, grill the shrimp for 2-3 minutes per side. Add the cooked shrimp skewers to the noodle bowl.
Step 8
To make the Nuoc Cham Sauce, dissolve the Granulated Sugar (2 1/2 tablespoon) with the Water (1/3 cup) in a small bowl.
Step 9
Once the sugar has dissolved, combine the Fish Sauce (2 tablespoon), Lime (1/2), Rice Vinegar (1 1/2 tablespoon), Garlic (1 clove), and Chili Pepper (1).
Step 10
To make the Nutty Frankenstein Nuoc Cham Sauce, combine the Sesame Paste (1 tablespoon) with the Hoisin Sauce (1 tablespoon) in a small bowl until smooth and completely combined, then stir in the Nuoc Cham (1/4 cup) sauce you just made.
Step 11
Serve both sauces on the side of the bowl. Garnish with Fresh Thai Basil Leaves (to taste), wedges of Lime (1/2), Scallion (1 stalk), and Fried Shallots (to taste), and top with a drizzle of Sriracha (to taste).
