So Ohio has basically skipped spring all-together, and I've been eating a lot of cold foods to balance it out. I made this a while back for my website right when my mint started taking over my yard, and when I made it again it dawned on me, duh! this is awesome primal food.
1 lb Shrimp, de-veined, cooked and peeled (I remove the tails too, simply so it can be eaten with a fork easily)
1/2 peeled cucumber, sliced into rounds and then quarters
2-3 tablespoons of your favorite fat (bacon fat would kick ass with the shrimp!)
1 tablespoon chili paste (more or less to taste)
1 bunch of cilantro, roughly chopped
6-7 mint leaves, chiffonaded (which, I blatantly forgot when I was making this dish)
1 tsp lime zest
Juice from 1 lime
Salt, to taste
Mix all ingredients except salt together. Taste (might not even need salt). Add salt to taste. This dish is much better the next day when the flavors have had a chance to get to know one another. Refrigerate immediately.
