Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I always say that shrimp and glass noodles are the perfect match! The shrimp is bouncy and full of umami taste. The glass noodles are slippery and can absorb all the aromas. Let’s get started with Steamed Shrimp with Glass Noodles!


Serving: 2 to 4
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

For the steamed shrimp with glass noodles:
6 ounces glass noodles
3 cups hot water, for soaking
½ pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 tablespoon scallions, thinly sliced

For the sauce:
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium red finger hot pepper, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
Pinch of white pepper
2 tablespoons avocado oil, or other high-smoking point oil


To prepare:
  • In a bowl, add the glass noodles, and pour in the hot water. Soak for 5 minutes until softened. Drain.
  • Wrap the glass noodles into a round shape. Place it on a plate. Do the same with the rest.
  • Use a knife to carefully butterfly the deveined shrimp, and slice a hole in the middle. Insert the tail through the hole. Do the same with all of them.
  • Place the shrimp on the glass noodles. Set aside.
To make the sauce:
  • In a bowl, add the garlic, finger hot pepper, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and white pepper.
  • In a small pan over high heat, pour in the avocado oil. Heat it up until smoking hot.
  • Pour the hot oil over the sauce. (The sauce will be more aromatic this way.)
To steam:
  • Scope the sauce over the shrimp and glass noodles.
  • In a steamer over high heat, transfer the shrimp and glass noodles inside. Steam over high heat for about 3 minutes until the shrimp turns pink.
  • Carefully remove. Sprinkle scallions over the top.
  • In the same small pan over high heat, pour in the avocado oil. Heat it up until smoking hot. (You could also skip this step if you are watching your weight, and want to consume less oil.)
  • Pour the hot oil over the shrimp and glass noodles. Enjoy!
