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.
6. Flip, and cook on the other side until opaque and slightly pink. Line a tray with paper towel and place prawns on it. Cover it with aluminium foil while you prepare vermicelli.
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.

9. Arrange prawn and vermicelli on a serving platter, and serve immediately.
