Traditional Malaysian ingredients like lime, mango and mint pair beautifully with shrimp in this refreshing, fruity salad.

Cucumber(s)

1 cup(s), diced

Mint leaves

2 tbsp(s), fresh, minced

Green hot chili peppers

1 tsp(s), serrano-variety, minced (or to taste)

Olive oil

1 tbsp(s), extra-virgin

Fresh lime juice

1 tbsp(s)

Lime zest

2 tsp(s)

Kosher salt

½ tsp(s)

Sugar

½ tsp(s)

  2. 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.

Notes

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.
