Directions

1. Bring a large saucepan of water to boil.

2. Make dressing: Meanwhile, heat oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add red pepper flakes and cook, swirling occasionally, 3 minutes. Strain oil into a small bowl (discard red pepper flakes) and whisk in clam and lime juices; set aside.

3. Make shrimp salad: Drop shrimp into the boiling water, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 2 minutes, until shrimp turn opaque. Drain shrimp and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process; drain well. Transfer shrimp to a large bowl; add cabbage, carrot, bean sprouts, peanuts, coconut, and scallion. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.
