Notes
* If you can’t find kelp noodles and want to try this recipe, use glass noodle. Soak the noodle in hot water for 5 minutes until it turn clear. Strain dry and add to the salad ingredients.
* You can replace shrimp and squid with stir fry minced chicken / pork / beef
* For vegetarian version, add pan-seared tofu. Replace fish sauce with soy sauce/tamari
