Thai Pomelo and Shrimp Salad (Miang Som O)

[Photographs: Leela Punyaratabandhu]

Notes: Personally, I like my miang extra tart with the fragrance and slightly bitter flavor of lime rinds, so I include them in the salad. If you don't like chewing on pieces of lime, rind and all, leave them out. Instead, substitute with a tablespoon of fresh squeezed lime juice.

Likewise, if you don't like the taste of fresh ginger in this, you can also leave it out or replace it with something mild such as water chestnuts or jicama.

Lotus petals aren't necessary either. Trimmed lettuce leaves work just fine.

If pomelo is unavailable, grapefruit or navel orange can be used in its place.
