I'm a Maine girl. Those aren't Maine shrimps.
But the recipe is very good. Use any fresh shrimp and cook carefully so that the fish isn't rubbery.

This Vietnamese-inspired shrimp salad is perfect if you’re looking for something different to bring to a summer potluck or a light dish for warm-weather entertaining at home. This recipe calls for Asian hot chile sauce. The different styles and brands of sauce have varying heat levels, so taste as you go. Recipe adapted from The Summer Shack Cookbook by Jasper White (W.W. Norton, 2007).
