Traditional Malaysian ingredients like lime, mango, and mint pair beautifully with shrimp in this refreshing, fruity salad. Using precooked shrimp is a great timesaver in this dish but feel free to substitute leftover cooked shrimp in its place.
If you’d rather cook your own shrimp, either steam, grill, or saute them until pink and cooked through (time varies by size of shrimp). Just be sure to chill the cooked shrimp well before coarsely chopping and tossing with the other ingredients.
You Will Need:
1 pound(s) cooked shrimp, peeled, coarsely chopped (about 2 Cups)
1 Cup(s) mango(es), diced
1 Cup(s) cucumber(s), diced
2 Tbsp mint leaves, fresh, minced
1 tsp green hot chili pepper(s), serrano-variety, minced (or to taste)
1 Tbsp olive oil, extra-virgin
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp lime zest
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp sugar
In a medium bowl, combine shrimp, mango, cucumber, mint and pepper.
In another bowl, whisk together oil, lime juice and zest, salt and sugar; toss with shrimp mixture.
Yields about 1 cup shrimp salad per serving.
