Lobster With Glass Noodles

This is one of my favourite quick and easy meals. You can use any shellfish of your choice, such as prawns, crabs, or even clams. Today, I'm using a small lobster or also known as Canner lobster, as they are very priced at the moment, and taste really good too. 

Lobster With Glass Noodles


1 Canner or small Lobster, halved

50 grams Glass Noodles/Mung Bean Threads
1 tsp Oyster Sauce
1 1/2 tsp Light Soy Sauce
1/4 tsp Chicken Granules
1 tsp Fish Sauce
1 tsp Chinese Cooking Wine
1/2 Cup of Water

1/2 tsp Coarsely ground Black Peppercorns
4 to 5 Slices of Ginger
2 Cloves Garlic, peeled, smashed
1/4 Cup Coarsely Chopped Chinese Celery
1/4 Cup Coarsely Chopped Coriander
2 Scallions, chopped (white part only)
1 Tbsp Cooking Oil

1 Red Chili, sliced
2 Tbsp Coarsely Chopped Coriander
2 Scallions, chopped (Green part only)
1 tsp Sesame Oil
A few grinds of Black peppercorns


Soak the glass noodles in cold water for 5 minutes. Drain and cut into shorter length. (about 6 to 8 inches) Mix the glass noodles with oyster sauce, light soy sauce, chicken granules, fish sauce, cooking wine, and water. Set aside.

Heat a small pot (preferably, clay pot) over medium heat. When the pot is hot, add cooking oil, black pepper, ginger, garlic, Chinese celery, coriander, and scallions. Mix the ingredients for few seconds, then add the glass noodle mixture. Top with lobster, crab, or prawns, and cover with a lid. Cook for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until the seafood is just cook. Then drizzle some sesame oil, a few grinds of black pepper, and garnish with chili, scallion, and some coriander. Serve immediately.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
