Break the vermicelli into small pieces in a bowl, cover with hot water and leave for 30-60 minutes until softened. Drain and set aside.
Place mussels into a large heavy-based saucepan. Cover tightly and cook over medium heat for 4 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally. If mussels have not opened, cover and cook for a further 1–2 minutes.

Heat 1 Tbsp of oil in a saucepan. Add ginger, mussels and prawns, stir and cook gently for 5 minutes. Remove mussels and prawns from the saucepan and set aside.
Add water and mussel juice to the saucepan. Bring to the boil.
Add remaining oil and wong bok. Cover the pan and cook for 8-10 minutes or until wong bok is tender.
Add vermicelli, bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes.
Add mussels, prawns and tofu. Heat gently for 1-2 minutes.
Add salt and pepper.
