Vermicelli_Shrimp_IMG_7503Shane and I both found this dish a bit disappointing. It wasn’t bad per se, it just wasn’t that great. I felt like it could have used twice the amount of lime juice, zest and fish sauce that the recipe called for.

We found the recipe for Rice Vermicelli with Shrimp in this month’s Food Network Magazine. I had high hopes for a new one-dish meal to add to my repertoire. Shane pointed out that he didn’t subscribe for the recipes, he likes Food Network because it’s good for collage. It does seem logical that the magazines that churn out 100 or so new recipes per month generate fewer hits than those that carefully curate a handful at a time.

Anywhoo. We didn’t die or starve.
