Sambal Belacan To Serve (ground):

- Blanch yellow noodles, meehoon and bean sprout separately.
- Divide yellow mee, meehoon and bean sprouts into individual bowls, arrange prawns, sliced pork belly on top and pour over the boiling stock. Sprinkle fried shallots, shredded omelette and chopped spring onion on top and serve with sambal belacan.
- Blanch prawn in boiling stock till cooked. Shell the prawn, wrap up the prawn shell in a muslin bag and put into the stock and boil to extract the prawn flavour.
- The red chillies used for making the sambal belacan can be cut into chunks and dry in the sun for 1 hour to get rid of the raw taste.
- The juice of calamansi should only be squeezed and mixed with sambal belacan just before serving.
