“In addition to being a lean source of protein, shrimp are rich in vitamin B12 and selenium,” says New York City-based recipe developer Laura Rege. “Buy them pre-cooked to save time and pair them with fresh, crisp vegetables for a hot summer day.”
For the Nuoc Cham sauce:
fresh lime juice
For the salad:
(1 package) rice vermicelli noodles , cooked
ounces large pre-cooked shrimp, tails removed and cut in half lengthwise
romaine lettuce leaves, chopped
small carrots, julienned
Persian cucumber, julienned
mint leaves, roughly chopped
roughly chopped roasted and salted peanuts
Whisk all the sauce ingredients together with 1 teaspoon of water until the honey is dissolved. Set aside.
In a bowl, combine the noodles with the shrimp, lettuce, carrot, cucumber, and mint. Top with peanuts and Nuoc Cham sauce as desired.
