Title: Thai shrimp-and-pasta salad
Categories: Salads, Main dish, Shellfish
Yield: 2 Servings
2 oz Uncooked linguine
1/2 c Shredded carrot
8 oz Medium shrimp, cooked and
1 c Thinly sliced Boston lettuce
1/4 c Fresh cilantro leaves
2 tb Chopped unsalted,
1/4 c Fresh lime juice
2 tb Fish sauce
2 tb Chopped fresh cilantro
1 tb Chopped green onions
2 1/2 ts Sugar
2 ts Vegetable oil
1 ts Grated peeled fresh ginger
2 Garlic cloves, minced
Store the shrimp-pasta mixture and vinaigrette separately in the
refrigerator; toss just before serving. Fish sauce is a salty
condiment that accounts for the high sodium content of this salad. It
comes bottled and is sometimes labeled nam pla in Asian markets or
your supermarket's ethnic-food section.
1. Cook pasta in boiling water 9-1/2 minutes. Add carrot; cook an
additional 30 seconds. Drain, and cool. Combine pasta mixture, shrimp,
lettuce, cilantro leaves, and peanuts in a large bowl; toss well.
2. Combine lime juice and remaining ingredients in a jar. Cover
tightly, and shake vigorously. Pour over pasta mixture, tossing
gently to coat. Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 2 cups).
