Soak the rice noodles in cold water until they soften then drain and soak in hot water for about 5 minutes. Then drain again and put the noodles into deep serving bowls ready to eat.



Cut the limes in half and place in a bowl for later (Note. The limes below are a bit more ripe than I would usually use. I prefer them to still be a green colour.)



Slice the fish fillet into bite sized pieces. Try to use a type of fish that will not easily fall apart when cooked. Mackerel is good.



Blend the garlic and onion



Put the cooking oil in a deep saucepan and heat on medium high



Add the onion and garlic and fry until fragrant



Add the laksa paste and stir well



Add water then stir



Cover and cook for about 5 minutes



Add coconut milk



Add salt



Add prawns (Note. Cut the front 1/3 off each prawn head first)



Add fish



Add squid



Cover and cook for another 5 minutes



Add MSG (optional)



Add coz lettuce (Note. It is better to add bean sprouts but I didn't have any when I cooked this)



Cook until the lettuce just starts to soften.

Put the mint leaves on top of the noodles then pour the soup mixture on top

Sprinkle some dried shallots on top.

Squeeze golden lime juice into the soup and enjoy!
