Goong ten (Thai:กุ้งเต้น, Dancing Shrimp Salad)[1] is a popular dish in Northeast Thailand and Laos. It consists of fresh raw shrimp in spicy sauce with fresh herbs, and it can be found at E-san restaurants or in fresh markets. Goong ten is still not accepted by some people because it is eaten while the shrimp are still alive. Nowadays, most people freeze the shrimp in ice or put them in cold water before preparing them.

  1. Clean freshwater shrimp well.
  2. Put the shrimp in ice water for 5 minutes or until they stop moving. Drain, dry, and set aside.
  3. Make the spicy sauce by combining the fish sauce, sugar, chili, and lime juice together. Test and flavor it as desired. Add more chili for a more spicy taste or add more lime for a more sour taste.
  4. Shake the shrimp with the spicy sauce in a bag to mix it well.
  5. Serve with peppermint leaves and coriander.
