Serves: 4 Servings

  • 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp chili paste
  • 3 Tbsp ginger sesame dressing (see below)
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 3 cups shredded napa cabbage
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped
For the Ginger Sesame Dressing:
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • ¼ tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Toss shrimp with olive oil on a large baking sheet and bake for about 5 to 7 minutes, until shrimp are pink and cooked through. Remove from oven and set aside.
  3. To make the ginger sesame dressing, combine all ingredients in a small jar with a sealed lid and shake well until combined. I also use this jar to store any extra dressing to use for the week.
  4. To make the sauce for the shrimp, whisk together chili paste, 3 tablespoons of the ginger sesame dressing and lime juice. Add cooked shrimp and toss to combine; set aside.
  5. For the salad, combine shredded cabbage, carrots, snap peas, cilantro and mint in a large bowl and toss with the extra ginger sesame dressing. Top with cooked shrimp and enjoy!
  6. If making this salad for lunches, store the dressing in a sealed jar and drizzle over salad just before eating so salad stays fresh.
