READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sue Lau

Spicy, refreshing, and easy and quick beyond belief to make! Buy your shrimp already cooked from the market and you won't have to cook a thing!

Top Review by Garlic Chick

Bravo, nice salad! I made this a couple of days ago following the directions exactly but used the microplane to grate my ginger and I did not have the lemongrass so used the zest of one lemon. To my dressing I added 1 tablespoon of canola oil to hold it onto the salad better. I cooked my own shrimp but see how easy it would be with pre-cooked. I actually think I would like this even better with chicken. Thanks for posting, Sue Lau.
