  • 3 cups water 200g pork belly, finely cubed 1 tsp oil 1 tbsp seafood bouillon/stock 1 tbsp anatto powder 1 cup cold water, extra ¼ cup flour 2 tbsp patis (fish sauce) black pepper 1 tbsp oil, extra 100g firm tofu, cubed 4 hardboiled eggs, peeled and quartered 5 spring onions, finely sliced 1 tbsp fried garlic ½ cup tinapa, flaked ½ cup chicharon 1 packet rice noodles (approx. 400g) calamansi or lemon Instructions Remove the heads and shells from the shrimp, reserve the meat. Roughly chop the heads and shells then place in a saucepan along with the water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes, skim any impurities from the surface. Remove from the heat and strain the mixture to remove the shells. Reserve the liquid. In another saucepan heat the oil and fry the pork for about 5 minutes or until golden. Add the reserved liquid and seafood stock. Bring to a gentle simmer while stirring occasionally. Combine the anatto power with ½ cup additional water and add to the pan. Mix to combine. Cook 2 minutes. Combine the flour with the remaining half-cup of cold water, then add the the pan, whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Season with patis and black pepper, then simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until thickened. Set aside. Heat a small frypan and add oil, then cook the reserved shrimp for 3 minutes or until they have changed colour. Remove and set aside. Using the same pan, add the tofu and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy. Assemble the prepared prawns, tofu, hardboiled eggs, flaked tinapa, spring onions, fried garlic and chicharon onto a plate ready to top the noodles. Cook the rice noodles according to packet directions. In each serving bowl, place some noodles, top with a generous spoon of the shrimp sauce and add toppings in this order; prawn, egg, tofu, tinapa, chicharon, garlic and spring onions. Serve with calamansi or lemon! Notes If you are unable to get tinapa flakes you can substitute smoked salmon which will still give a similar taste. 3.5.3208
