“A quick and refreshing dish with a Thai flair.”

Ingredients

  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/2 (16 ounce) package dry rice stick noodles
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups diced fresh peaches
  • 1 cup shredded napa cabbage
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • 6 skewers

Directions

  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Combine shrimp, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, and lime zest in a bowl. Allow shrimp to marinate at room temperature while preparing remaining ingredients.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add rice stick noodles to boiling water and remove from heat. Cook until noodles have cooked through, but are still firm to the bite, 3 to 5 minutes. Rinse will cold water until chilled; drain well.
  4. Whisk lime juice, remaining 3 tablespoons soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, remaining 1 teaspoon lime zest, anchovy paste, and hot pepper sauce in a large bowl. Add peaches, cabbage, carrots, cilantro, basil, and garlic and toss to coat. Stir rice noodles into vegetable mixture until combined; set aside.
  5. Thread about 8 shrimp on 4 wooden skewer by piercing shrimp through the tail and the upper body. Pierce cherry tomatoes onto remaining 2 skewers.
  6. Place shrimp and tomato skewers on preheated grill. Cook tomatoes until they begin to split, about 3 minutes per side; transfer to a platter. Continue to cook shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and is no longer transparent in the center, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove tomatoes and shrimp from skewers.
  7. Transfer noodle salad to a large platter. Surround salad with tomatoes and shrimp; drizzle any remaining lime dressing over shrimp.
