Thai-Style Squid Salad

Wow! This was delicious! We bought a few random proteins at Whole Foods - peeled and deveined shrimp (b/c the shell on was sold out) and then decided to buy some calamari too. I looked at the cookbook for some cooking guidance (takeaway: cook high and fast for 3 minutes or low and slow for 30+). It seemed we had nearly all the ingredients for this one. I made a couple substitutions. We had no Thai chiles so I used pickled jalapeños chopped (I was skeptical, but did a taste test before incorporating and it was great—although lacking texture). I had no mint and used salad mix as the base. This dish was fantastic! I also did 1/2 lb calamari, and 1 lb shrimp). A new favorite, made 1/11/15.
