Glass Noodles Salad ยำวุ้นเส้น

Spicy salad, or “Yum” in Thai language, is a very popular dish. There are so many varieties of salad and you can add almost anything you like in the dish.

I love salad and this is one of the best. The dish is glass noodles salad(traditional style). The glass noodles are made from mung beans, and you can usually find a dried version.

Let’s look more closely at the ingredients.

  • 1 pack of glass noodles (soaked in water for 7 mins)
  • 2 tbsp peanuts, fried
  • 2 tbsp dried shrimps, fried
  • 1 tbsp garlic, fried
  • 1/2 cup chicken breast, mince
  • Chopped chilli and chilli powder as required
  • Lime juice, to taste (I used nearly 1 lime)
  • Fish sauce, to taste (I used around 2 tbsp)
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • Chopped spring onion, chopped Asian celery or coriander.
  • Cooked prawns (as you like)

“There are so many varieties of salad and you can add almost anything you like in the dish”


  1. Soak dried noodles in the water for around 7 minutes.
  2. Fry the peanuts,and dried shrimps, set aside then fry chopped garlic and keep the oil together with the garlic.
  3. Add minced chicken breast in a small pot with a little bit of water. I also added some powder stock to enhance the flavour, but this is optional.
  4. Boil a pot of water and then cook the noodles until translucent. Remove the noodles from the water, then add prawns in the pot until cooked.
  5. Add the noodles in a bowl then just cut the noodles a few times so you do not end up with long and difficult to eat noodles.
  6. Add garlic and oil to the noodles and mix well.
  7. Add chicken then seasoning with lime juice and fish sauce and keep tasting until satisfied. Note: This recipe has no sugar, but after trying it if you think it needs sugar you can add it.
  8. Add fried peanuts, fried dried shrimps, cooked prawns, sliced onion, chopped spring onion and chopped Asian celery.
