Pasta salads I love, pasta salads with shrimp, even better! Ingredients are easily available, and if you are near the coast, the local caught small shrimp is very inexpensive. This is a base recipe, meaning change this up with anything you want, such as crab, imitation crab, more or less bell peppers for color, with our without relish or change to chopped pickles. Very easy dish to put together. I made this on 12 Oct 2016, modified to what I had on hand, and it is very good! Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. In a pot of boiling water, add the pasta and cook until just tender, drain and rinse under cold water. (I made this using #32 Maccheroni.)
  2. While the pasta is cooking, mix the dressing ingredients in a large bowl, then add the pasta and the rest of the ingredients and gently mix with the dressing. Place in the fridge for at least an hour to chill before serving. (I added the chopped items on top of the drained pasta, I like eggs in a pasta salad so I added a few chopped eggs as well.)
Recipe Notes

If you can get small White shrimp from a local fisherman, this is minimal cost. If you get from Tesco, the small Whites will run about 48 Baht for 250 grams, which is plenty. This is easily about 23 cents per serving for 6 servings. More than reasonable for a side dish with shrimp.

Variant: I think real or imitation crab would work well in this, either with or without the shrimp.

Shortcut: Dill Pickles.

  1. I made this on 12 Oct 2016 and it is very good. I modified this to what I had on hand, and since I like pasta anything salad, I also made a larger amount. I used 500 grams of #32 Maccheroni, which is just a straight version of macaroni with no elbow in it, which is an import but cheaper than elbow macaroni made in Thailand. Been rough weather here so no fresh shrimp so I went with imitation crab (about 700 grams), The grocery store did not have bell peppers so I left that out, and their celery was marginal quality at best so I left that out as well. I have never seen relish here so I went with a chopped up dill pickle (adds a good flavor) and a couple of spoons of pickle juice as well. And added some chopped hard boiled eggs. Over all, excellent flavor. Next time I will use shrimp and imitation crab, that can only be better.
