Optional condiments: Sriracha sauce, Kiwi lime sauce (made with 1 peeled kiwi pureed with 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 teaspoon Cross & Blackwell mint sauce and dash of cayenne), mint leaves and chopped peanuts.
Prepare sauce by combining coconut amines, honey, lime zests, lime juice and ginger in a jar and shaking. Heat the mixture in a saucepan or microwave for 10 seconds if necessary to dissolve the honey.
Rinse and shell the shrimp, leaving the tails on. String six shrimp each on three skewers. Lightly brush with olive oil and spicy seasoning mixture.
Prepare the vegetables and soak rice noodles according to package directions. Heat a medium skillet or wok pan over high heat with 1 tablespoon sunflower, peanut or sesame oil and stir fry peppers and mushrooms until browned and liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated. Add the garlic and most of the sliced green onions, saving about a teaspoon for garnish. Stir in the noodles and toss.
Grill the shrimp for 3 to 3-1/2 minutes on each side e until pink. Do not overcook. Our grill rack is very close to the burners so we turned the heat down to medium-low. Cook time and temperature depends on your grill and the size of the shrimp.
To serve: add the sauce to the vegetable and noodle mixture, serve with a skewer of shrimp and spring lettuce with condiments.
