DIRECTIONS

  • Make the Emerald Sauce: Put all the the ingredients, except 1/4 cup of the peanuts, in a food processor or blender and pulse until the mixture is quite smooth. Stop occasionally to scrape the sides of bowl. Add the remaining peanuts and pulse just a few times to roughly chop and leave a little crunch to the sauce. Toss with noodles.
  • Use immediately, or refrigerate up to 2 days.
  • For the Shrimp: Preheat grill to medium hot. Use a serrated knife to to cut shrimp lengthwise along the back of the shell, stopping short of cutting all the way through, and devein. This will make shells pop off for easy eating.
  • Put shrimp in a large bowl and add 1/4 cup mint, 1/4 cup cilantro, basil, chilies, olive oil, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic, sugar, and salt. Toss well to coat.
  • Thread 3 shrimp onto each skewer through the head and tail end.
  • Grill shrimp over medium-hot heat until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  • Use a fork to spiral noodles into a nest on the plate and crisscross 2 skewers on top. Garnish with remaining mint and cilantro.
