Note Fresh rice noodle sheets and dried shrimp are available from Asian grocers. Some grocers will have a selection of sizes; opt for the largest shrimps you can afford because they'll have the best flavour.
Slippery rice noodles are great stir-fried with pork and egg or in a soupy broth, but this Vietnamese way of serving them, with a chilli and lime dressing and herbs, makes a really fresh alternative. Cut the noodles any way you like, or even buy the noodles rolled or pre-cut - the flavour will be the same.
