Description

A deconstructed summer roll salad. Less time consuming than making the rolls but full of all the same flavors.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces, weight Bean Thread Noodles
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 2 whole Shallots, Thinly Sliced
  • ½ pounds Shrimp, Shells, Veins And Tails Removed
  • ¾ cups Fish Sauce
  • ¾ cups Rice Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Ginger, grated
  • 2 whole Small Red Chilies, Diced
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1 whole Medium Cucumber, Julienned
  • 2 whole Carrots, Peeled And Julienned
  • 1 cup Bean Sprouts
  • ⅓ cups Fresh Basil, Chopped
  • ⅓ cups Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
  • ⅓ cups Fresh Mint, Chopped
  • ⅓ cups Roasted Peanuts, Smashed
  • 3 whole Lime Wedges

Preparation

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add noodles. Cook 3-5 minutes making sure not to overcook (refer to the package instructions for the specific timing for your noodles). Put the noodles into a colander to drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.

2. In a pan heat coconut oil over medium-high heat and add shallots. Cook until shallots are starting to get golden brown. Remove them from the pan and drain on a paper towel. Add shrimp to the pan and cook until cooked through, roughly 3-4 minutes. Then remove the shrimp from the pan.

3. To make the dressing: In a small bowl whisk together the fish sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, red chili pepper and honey.

4. To assemble the salad: In a large bowl add cucumber, carrot, bean sprouts and noodles, toss to combine. Add all of the herbs, shallots and peanuts, and top with shrimp. Squeeze lime wedges over the salad. Pour the dressing over the salad when ready to eat, otherwise noodles will get soggy. Serve with additional lime wedges.

Great idea, but the recipe just didn’t work. Way too much dressing and the fish sauce overpowered the other flavors. It was also very labor intensive. Overall disappointing.

My husband and I love Vietnamese food. This recipe looks delicious, but the amount of fish sauce sounds like WAY too much. Is it correct?

I liked the flavors in this dish, but didn’t like the bean threads in it. I’ll try it next time cutting the noodles to make it easier to eat. It was also a lot of work to prepare (cutting prep) and I would do this on a weekend rather than for a weeknight dinner.
