Pleasing to the eye as well as the palate. The crisp fresh flavors of the vegetables with the brinyness of the shrimp and the hot / sour / salty /sweet flavors of the dipping sauce are a perfect combination. We serve these as the meal for the two of us and as appetizer or small plate and wine pairing item for a larger group.

I agree with the previous reviewer! This is a delicious dish. I added sesame oil, chili oil, and tamari to the sauce to give it a little more flavor. Also served it with some hoisin sauce for a little extra sauce option. I would also consider swapping white rice for the bean thread noodles since hey can get a little slippery. I recommend this dish for a light healthy meal.
