1 fresh red chilli or 2-3 bird's eye chillies, finely sliced
To prepare glass noodles: Cover the glass noodles with boiling water and allow to soak until soft and translucent. Drain well.
To saute prawns and squid: Heat the oil in a frying pan over high heat and sear the prawns until they turn pink. Dish out. Add the squid into the pan and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Dish out and set aside. Reserve the seafood-infused oil.
To prepare dressing: Combine all the dressing ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Just before serving, add the glass noodles, prawns, squid, shallots and lemongrass and toss well. Add the rest of the salad ingredients and toss.
