Shrimp Pad Thai Salad


Honestly guys, I don't know what else should I say when Thai cuisine is our food card. I think much we have already spoken about before? In my previous recipes (Thai Vegetable Curry)? I sincerely believe so because I have been taking you back and forth, to and fro, from Thailand and back to our mother land (Thai Carrot Soup & Seafood Tom Yum Soup). Today, lemme share with you this Shrimp Pad Thai Salad (Shrimp Pho). Obviously a noodle dish and one which I made due to I still had some spaghetti in hand after making Lamb Spaghetti. Of course, you can use, please go ahead and use other type of noodles. As you wish, as for your pleasure or as what's already available at home (Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon, Spicy Thai Noodles & Thai Fish Noodle Soup). In fact, when we speak about home cooked meals, there is no right and wrong. Its you basically and you don't even have to replicate recipes as they are. That's how it is for me personally. Shrimp Pad Thai Salad? So easy. In fact, just a tiny fraction of cooking. Simmering the prawns in water just for a minute or two, and then, toss all the ingredients together. In a jiffy meal and trust me, Shrimp Pad Thai Salad  (Thai Mee Hoon Salad) will not let you down. I sincerely reckon each and everyone of you will joyously tuck in. Succulent prawns, spiciness from green chillies, aroma of kaffir lime leaves, fresh burst from ginger and tat tinge of saltiness and tanginess from fish sauce and lime juice.

Ingredients
1/4 packet (about 200g) spaghetti - cook according to the packet instructions
10 fresh medium size shrimps 
1 tsp chopped ginger
3 shallots - chopped
1/2 red capsicum - cubed 
2 green chillies - cut into thin stripes
3-4 kaffir lime leaves - shredded
1 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp sugar
3-4 birds eye chillies or 1 red chilli
Salt for taste (taste before adding)

Method
Blanch shrimps in simmering water to cook. 
Remove and cool down. Then remove shells and heads, slice into two pieces and gently remove the veins. Add shrimps with all the rest of ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix and stir all together. Lastly toss in spaghetti.

  2. Sorry about the lamb spaghetti not being a sell-out, I like lamb 'tho, this recipe is a sure winner (even 'tho I'm allergic to sea food)-it looks utterly delicious and tempting, I'm sure sea food lovers will devour this dish in no time. The scrumptious prawns and generous portions of ingredients will see off any competition
