Description

Thai Noodle Shrimp Spicy Salad is the epitomy of awakening the senses with fresh flavors, from the aroma of the fresh cilantro and Thai basil, to that wonderful eye-opening scent of lemongrass taking us open-heartedly into an exotic experience, thanks to Eat the World and this month’s stop, Thailand.


Ingredients

  • 1 Thai red chili
  • 6 sprigs cilantro stems, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp cane sugar
  • 3 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • Mama chili powder to taste (comes inside the noodle packet)
  • 2 Tbsp grated lemon grass
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 sweet onion, julienned
  • 2 packs instant Mama Noodles
  • 12 medium uncooked shrimp (I left the shell on)
  • 2 packages of Mama’s Garlic oil (comes with the noodles)
  • 200 g organic ground pork
  • 2 interior celery stalks with leaves chopped
  • handful of cilantro leaves
  • handful of Asian basil leaves

Instructions

Dressing:

  1. With a mortar and pestle pound the fresh red chili, cilantro stems, and Asian basil into a paste.
  2. Add the chunk of cane sugar and pound until it dissolves.
  3. Pour in lime juice, soy sauce, fish sauce, lemongrass, and Mama chili powder. Give it a quick stir and set aside.

Noodles, shrimp and pork:

  1. Bring a medium pot of water to boil.
  2. Break up noodles and toss into boiling water, cook for 2 minutes and scoop out noodles, drain and set aside.
  3. Toss shrimp into the boiling water and cook until they just start to turn color about 3-4 minutes. Take out and set aside.
  4. Drain water from pot and add Mama’s garlic oil pouches. Toss in ground pork and sautee until brown and cooked 5 minutes, breaking up the pork.
  5. Toss in shrimp and take pot off heat, toss shrimp with the pork and then take a bowl and throw in the quartered cherry tomatoes and julienned onion and pour the pork and shrimp over top the veggies letting the drippings in too!
  6. Toss in noodles and pour in dressing, toss well.
  7. Top with some chopped cilantro and Asian basil.
  8. Serve immediately.
  9. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. If you like things really spicy put in more fresh chilis and Mama’s chili powder.
  2. If you do not like cilantro omit it and just use Asian basil.
  3. If you have some leftovers you can warm it to room temperature or eat it cold, either way works.
