Easy, enjoyable Thai salad, which is delicious for lunch or a light dinner. Serve it warm or room-temperature, either on its own or with lettuce wraps for a casual meal.
"My grocery store didn't have proper rice noodles, so I just used spaghetti, but this was delicious! I am fairly new to cooking. This was fast, easy and impressive. And the kids (2 and 4) approved. I did not add papaya."- Deepolliwog

Bring a large stockpot of water to a rolling boil.
Meanwhile, heat a large saute pan to medium heat. Add vegetable oil, and saute the shrimp, carrots and ginger very briefly until the shrimp is almost cooked through, about 2 minutes. Note that the shrimp will continue to cook when you turn off the heat, so stop them before they are fully cooked. Put them aside in a bowl.
Place rice noodles in boiling water, and boil for 2 minutes. Drain into a colander and (for room-temperature salad), wash and rinse well with cold water. Mix ingredients in a large bowl. Garnish with cilantro and lime, and crushed peanuts.

nicolegory 6 months agoIt was very good! I think next time I will try to make my own sauce. I substitute the papaya for avocado and cooked the shrimp with a little sesame oil.
kristinsacco 9 months agoThis was delicious and very easy. I think next time I would add a small amount of salt to the water for the noodles.

melodynelson 1 year agoThe flavor in this is unbelievable! You will find yourself standing at the fridge with a fork in your hand eating it out of the bowl...that is if there is any left to put in the fridge.
