This was great. We followed the recipe exactly. I agree with the previous poster. This was quite hot, & we like spicy food. We will tone down the heat just slightly in the future. Definitely a keeper to be repeated.

This salad was delicious. I made it for my lunch group at work and it got rave reviews. I did add some crushed garlic and some honey for sweetness. This will be a staple on our lunch bunch menu.

This recipe was missing something, in my opinion. I like spicy food so I followed the recipe as described, but I think the proportions are off. Too much sriracha in comparison to the other ingredients. I think the shrimp would taste better with this if they were grilled and served warm over the cool noodles and lettuce. Curious to know if anyone experiments with this recipe as I think it has potential. But definitely missing something.

Overall I thought the recipe was good, quick and easy. The spicy sauce was too much - even after I reduced the quantity to 2 teaspoons. I'd recommend reducing it even more, to 1 teaspoon. I will be making it again with alterations.

I make this recipe whenever it's warm outside! I have sent it to many friends...I use sambal oelek (Crushed chilis with garlic) as I know its heat intimately and I always substitute anchovy paste for fish sauce. I think fish sauce tastes like kerosene. Sometimes I add ginger or lemongrass, I have occasionally reduced the mint and added thai basil. Often I use asian rice noodles. Thai cuisine, once you are aware of the palette of flavors is great for improvisation
