1. In a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag, add olive oil, garlic salt, and red pepper sauce. Shake and mix well.

2. Drop prawns in plastic and press to coat evenly. Seal the bag and let it marinate overnight.


3. Follow package directions and cook vermicelli.

4. Meanwhile, place a skillet over medium heat, and drop marinated prawns in it. Also add leftover marinade, if any.

5. Turn the heat down to low, and cook prawns until the bottom part turns opaque.

7. In a bowl, drain and put vermicelli. Add olive oil, and ground white pepper. Mix well.

8. Taste and season with salt, if desired.
