I remember goong ob woonsen from wedding banquets. Many Thai wedding banquets serve Chinese and Chinese influenced dishes like this one. It usually comes in a clay pot. It is always one of my favourites.
Baked Shrimp in Clear Noodles Recipe
Cilantro roots are actually used in this recipe, but cilantro is rarely sold with roots in the US. If you have some cilantro roots, do use a couple in place of cilantro sprigs. I use 6 large shrimp for this recipe. I don't devein the shrimp or peel the shell off. Whole shrimp with heads and shell give a wonderful presentation.
Heat up a tablespoon of oil in a wok over low heat. Add the ground ingredients and stir fry for a minute. Add onion and stir until the onion is tender then turn off the heat. Drain and add the clear noodles to the pan. A little water in the noodles is ok since it will keep the noodles soft when baking. Baking tends to take the moisture out of the noodles and the dish loses its taste if it becomes dry when baking. Add soy sauce, sugar,and a few drop of sesame oil. Mix well.
Serve hot with rice.
