  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces large raw shrimp
  • 3 cloves garlic divided
  • 1 red Thai chili pepper or other hot chili pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup tomato chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh string beans
  • 2 cups shredded or spiralized green papaya I used a regular, ripe papaya
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoons fish sauce


  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add one minced clove of garlic and the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until garlic is just pink about 5 minutes. Let shrimp cool to room temperature or chill in the refrigerator.
  2. I don't have a food processor, so I minced all my vegetables by hand. It is probably easier to pulse all your veggies in the food processor. Mince or chop the following into the smallest pieces possible: 2 cloves garlic, chili, peanuts, tomato, string beans. Toss in papaya. Drizzle with lime juice, sugar, and fish sauce and toss until evenly coated.
  3. Divide salad between two bowls and top with shrimp.
