Shrimp Cellophane Noodle Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Oolala

From a cookbook with step by step photos and instructions (I ripped this out of it before getting rid of it) but I don't see the name on the pages. The cook's tip: Shrimp are available ready cooked and shelled. To cook shrimp, boil them for 2 minutes. Allow them to cool in the cooking liquid, then gently pull off the tail shell and twist off the body.

Great!. I used mint flakes,dried cilantro flakes, ginger paste, lime zest fresh, with lime juice, a smidgin of cayenne pepper. The noodles, shrimp and vegies remain. The changes were made to the sauce with the rice vinegar with bonito flake sauce (fish sauce). Refrigerate overnight covered and it is more flavorable. Great recipe.
