Pancit Palabok Recipe

INGREDIENTS:
  • 500 grams rice noodles (bihon)
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoons) cooking oil
  • 10 grams dried prawns
  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon achuete powder
  • 600 ml shrimp stock (see recipe below)
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoons) fish sauce (plus more to taste)
  • salt and pepper
  • Toppings: grilled squid, prawns, pork belly, smoked fish (tinapa), crushed pork crackling (chicharon), spring onions, hard boiled egg (quartered)
For Prawn Stock
  • 500 grams fresh prawns
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. To make the prawn stock, peel the prawns and place the peels (including the prawn heads) them in a pot and cover with around 600 ml of water. Bring to a boil and then turn the heat down to a simmer. Make sure to press the peels as the stock is simmering to extract as much flavour as you can. Continue to simmer for around 30 minutes and set aside. The peeled prawns can be used for the toppings.
  2. Heat the cooking oil and saute the dried prawns and garlic until fragrant, around 2 minutes. Next, add the flour and the achuete powder.
  3. Add the prawn stock, a little at a time as if making a roux and mixing well after each addition. The sauce should now be thick (like a custard or a thick bechamel). If you prefer to make it thinner, add some water to dilute. Add the fish sauce and some salt and pepper to taste.
  4. For the toppings – this should be done to taste. Marinate the squid, prawns and pork belly in equal quantities of soy sauce and fish sauce for around 30 minutes then grill or pan fry.
  5. Fill another pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the bihon noodles and cook for around a minute until tender. Strain then place in a bowl Top with the prawn gravy, and the toppings (see above).
