Coconut Bun Vermicelli
August 10, 2014
These thick rice noodles were really awesome. They had a nice firm texture that made me think they would actually work really well as a gluten free spaghetti. I popped the shrimp on the grill for just a few minutes. Mix some cucumber, carrot, peanut, and mint in with the noodles. Add coconut milk, fish sauce, and sriracha. This was so good for a hot summer night. A cool and light dish with not much actual cooking needed. I was so happy to learn this new take on one of my favorites! Creamy, salty, and just a little spice.
