Captain Shrimp-tastic

Shrimp Noodle SaladIn the continuing adventures of shrimp salad we find our hero creating Rice-stick Noodle Salad with Vietnamese Shrimp for Princess Janet who is arriving home late. High expectations were created by the Warm Jasmine Rice Salad with Shrimp and Thai Herbs, which accompanied Pan-Seared Tuna With Ginger-Shiitake Cream Sauce on one of their first dates. Our hero seems not to realize that combining shrimp, fish sauce, cilantro, mint, and peanuts can only take one so far. Oh no, the rick stick noodles have been used up in the Pad Thai leaving only buckwheat soba noodles. This is deemed an adequate substitution with optimism for a happy accident.

Bright colors draw a warm greeting from Janet at the dinner table. Compliments are made and comparisons to past dishes are kept to a minimum. The best that can honestly be said: there are several lunches leftover for coming days.
