Prepare pork and shrimp
Optional: If the pork bones, pork belly, and shrimp have a lingering foul odor, place in a large mixing bowl and scrub with 2 tablespoons of coarse salt, then rinse thoroughly under cold running water. suck out
Cut the pork belly into long strips. Then cut into thin pieces. Pour into a bowl and marinate with a little salt, sugar, fish sauce, paprika and turmeric. Put aside.
Detach the shrimp heads from the bodies. Set the shrimp heads aside to prepare the broth later. Peel and devein the shrimp as desired.
Place the shrimp in a bowl and marinate with a little salt, sugar, fish sauce, paprika and turmeric. Put aside.
make the broth
In the bottom of a large saucepan, heat a tablespoon of oil over medium-high. Add the shrimp heads and fry in the pan for 5 minutes. Smash the shrimp heads with the back of a spoon to release the head fat, which naturally colors the broth a lovely red/orange. Add pork bones, yellow onion, radish and 2 liters of water and bring the pot to a boil. Reduce the heat to minimum, leave the pot uncovered and simmer for 45 minutes. When finished, remove and discard any solids.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large pan. Add half the shallots and garlic and sauté in pan until fragrant (20 seconds). Add the marinated pork belly slices and cook for 5 minutes or until the outside is caramelized. Add the pork belly to the stock pot and cook the broth for another 15 minutes. Season the broth with the remaining salt, sugar, fish sauce, paprika and turmeric. Adjust to taste. If you find the broth a little overwhelming, add some MSG or chicken bouillon powder (wink wink).
Return to the empty pan and heat the remaining tablespoon of oil. Add remaining shallots and garlic and sauté in pan until fragrant (about 20 seconds). Add the marinated shrimp and cook for about three minutes or until no longer translucent. After cooking, set the shrimp aside.
Cook the pasta and prepare the vegetables
Cook noodles according to package instructions. Prepare the vegetables.
To prepare the rice crackers, lightly moisten them with water. You can use a water squirt on both sides or blot them with a damp paper towel. Make sure the microwave plate is clean and place the crackers directly on it. Heat for 30 seconds, turn over and heat for another 30 seconds until evenly inflated. Break the crackers into small pieces and set them aside.
To assemble, place veggies of your choice on the bottom of the bowl. Layer the cooked noodles on the bed of vegetables. Pour about a cup of broth over the noodles, making sure to include slices of pork belly. This noodle soup is part salad, so it only requires a small amount of concentrated broth.
Top the noodles with the shrimp, rice crackers, peanuts, and fried shallots.
Garnish with thinly sliced spring onions, coriander and yellow onions. Serve with lime or lemon wedges and enjoy.
You can also use pork ribs for the broth and save them as a meaty topping.
For a quicker version of the broth, use 4 cups of store-bought chicken broth and 4 cups of water. The cooking time will be shorter. Adjust the spices to taste.
If you don’t have shrimp heads, use jars or cans chopped crab and shrimp (about 5 ounces). If you use this, you don’t need paprika powder. Adjust the spices to taste.
