Spicy Shrimp and Green Apple Salad

[Photographs: Leela Punyaratabandhu]

Note: Dried red pepper flakes are used here as a way of introducing at least one smoky elements to the dish which could have been just as nice with fresh chilies. But you can also grill the shrimp, as opposed to poaching them, just to get a nice smoky char in which case finely-chopped fresh Thai bird's eye chilies are recommended as a replacement for the dried red pepper.
