Tiger Shrimp and Glass Noodle Salad

Tiger Shrimp and Glass Noodle Salad

Tiger Shrimp and Glass Noodle Salad - In this recipe from Gordon Ramsay, made using a Philips Airfryer to cook tiger shrimp, a mixture of vegetables and fresh herbs adds bright color and fresh flavor to a main course salad. It’s worth seeking out piment d’Espelette for its complex flavor and subtle heat, but hot paprika can be substituted if you like. You can also substitute rice noodles for the glass noodles (also called cellophane noodles), which are available at most Asian markets.
