No, Yum Woon Sen is not some new Korean superstar, but a delicious Thai dish I’ve always loved! :p

I have always been a huge huge fan of Thai food, in fact, my whole family totally adores Thai food.
And one of my favourite Thai dish is Yum Woon Sen (ยำวุ้นเส้น), Glass Noodle Salad.
I love mine with lots of seafood, especially prawns.
But for today’s recipe, I’ve opted for something simpler – with just minced pork and prawns.
It is so easy to cook but super yummy!

For all those who loves something appetizing and extremely healthy, here is the recipe for you!

The Thai Glass Noodles Salad (Yum Woon Sen) Recipe




Minced pork

1 “stalk” of celery

6 small onions

8 chilli padi

1 big chilli (optional)

Glass noodles (Tang Hoon)

4 tbsp of Thai fish sauce

1 tbsp of sugar

5 tbsp of fresh lemon/lime juice


Remember to use the green lemons instead of the yellow ones for this dish.

As for prawns, I chose to use frozen ones because they are easier to prepare.

The amount of sauces listed above is sufficient to prepare a dish to serve 2 to 3 persons.

You may also add other ingredients like squids or fish slices if you want.

Or if you’re feeling a little extravagant, it tastes really good with sliced abalone too!



Soak the vermicelli and boil them until they are soft.

You might want to chill them in the fridge after they are done.

This dish tastes great when it’s slightly chilled!



Cut the onions, chilli and celery into small pieces.

If you don’t want the dish to be too spicy, do remove some of the chilli seeds.

As for me, I really hate cutting onions because they make it cry. *complains*


Now for the sauce, freshly squeezed fresh lemon juice with the sugar and Thai fish sauce you’ve prepared.

This is the brand of fish sauce we used in this dish.




Add the cut onions, celery and chilli into the sauce and mix well.

Now you can leave the sauce aside and prepare to boil the minced pork and prawn!

After the prawn and pork is done, mix them well with the sauce prepared.




Mix in the chilled vermicelli, and VOILA!



You can garnish with some coriander leaves if you like.

Hope you’ll enjoy this delicious, healthy and appetite-whetting dish as much as I do!
