Marinated in a lively mixture of lemon juice, sriracha hot chilies, and savory fish sauce, these Vietnamese-style shrimp are served on a bed of soft green tea soba noodles and cooling, crunchy vegetables.

Ingredients

  • Chili-Lime Marinade, divided
  • 18 large prawns or shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 (7-ounce) package green tea soba noodles or spaghetti
  • 1 (14-ounce) can hearts of palm, drained
  • 1 Maui or other sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 heirloom tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • Garnish: fresh herbs

How to Make It

  1. Pour 1 cup Chili-Lime Marinade into a large zip-top plastic freezer bag; add prawns. Seal bag, turning to coat prawns. Chill 30 minutes.

  2. Pour remaining 1 cup marinade into a large bowl. Prepare noodles according to package directions. Add noodles to marinade in bowl, tossing to coat. Cut hearts of palm in half crosswise, then lengthwise into thin strips; add to noodles. Add onion to noodle mixture, and toss gently.

  3. Preheat grill. Remove prawns from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill prawns, covered with grill lid, over medium heat (350° to 400°) for 2 minutes on each side. Place noodle mixture on each of 6 individual plates, and top each with prawns and tomatoes. Garnish, if desired.
