Number of Servings: 4


    1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
    1/4 cup bottled clam juice
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

    12 ounces peeled and deveined medium shrimp
    1 small head Savoy cabbage or iceberg lettuce, shredded (4 cups)
    1 large carrot, peeled and grated (1 cup)
    4 ounces bean sprouts
    3 tablespoons unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
    3 tablespoons flaked sweetened coconut
    1 scallion, including top, thinly sliced


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.
