Thai Citrus Shrimp Salad

A few weeks ago, my sister-in-law, Sara, shared a link to a website full of a bunch of healthy delicious looking recipes (thanks,again, Sara!).  There were a few that caught my eye--including this one.  If you click on this link, it will take you to the website.  BUT don't be surprised if you can't find the Thai Citrus Shrimp Salad.  Why?  Because it was originally the Thai Citrus Chicken Salad.  I changed it up because I accidentally left the chicken in my car and only had shrimp on hand to replace it.  I also exchanged the papaya for pineapple because I just didn't like the way the papaya I purchased tasted.  I think it turned out to be pretty dang tasty!  I had a friend over for lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed it.  So, here is The Foreign Domestic's take on the Thai Citrus Chicken Shrimp Salad...




Ingredients:

For the Salad: 

1lb of shrimp
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup Napa cabbage, shredded (I took a shortcut and got the bag of pre-shredded cabbage)
1 cup red cabbage shredded (I took a shortcut and got the bag of pre-shredded cabbage)
1 cup pineapple, cut into tidbits
1 cup carrots, shredded (I took a shortcut and got a bag of pre-shredded carrots)
1/2 cup daikon, shredded
1/4 cup green onion, minced
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt
pepper

For the Dressing: 

1/2 lime, cut into wedges
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 to 1 jalepeno, or to taste

Steps:

  1. Sprinkle shrimp with salt and pepper, and add minced garlic.  Set aside for a few minutes
  2. Over medium-high heat, heat a skillet or pan and add olive oil
  3. When oil is hot, add shrimp and cook, turning occasionally until fully cooked.  Remove when done. 
  4. Squeeze juice from a wedge of lime on the shrimp and set aside to cool. 
  5. In a large bowl, mix together the rest of the salad ingredients (red and napa cabbage, carrots, pineapple, daikon, green onion, and cilantro).  Set aside. 
  6. In a small bowl, combine all salad dressing ingredients and mix together. 
  7. Pour dressing into a blender, and blend until emulsified. 
  8. Add shrimp and dressing to salad and mix to combine.  Serve with a lime wedge.


Enjoy!
