Shrimp Coleslaw:

  • 1 head Cabbage, shredded
  • 1 head Chinese/Napa cabbage, shredded
  • 2 whole Carrots, grated
  • 1 whole Red onion, halved and sliced thin
  • 1 cup Fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup Roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 1 lb. Salad shrimp


  • 1 ½ cups Unsweetened coconut milk
½ cup Lite or fat-free sour cream
  • 2 Tbs. Lite mayo
  • 1 whole Lime juiced, or 3 Tbs.
  • 2 Tbs. Asian fish sauce
  • 3 Tbs. Rice vinegar
1 cup Green onion, sliced thin
  • Salt & fresh ground black pepper

Dressing: In a mixing bowl, combine all dressing ingredients; whisk. Refrigerate for about an hour to thicken and let the flavors develop.

Shrimp Coleslaw: In a large bowl, toss together cabbage through mint and top with shrimp. Add dressing, but a little at a time in order to not saturate your salad greens. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper, then sprinkle cilantro and chopped peanuts on top.

Serves: 10 to 12
