About the Fresh Ingredients

I always like to use the freshest ingredients possible, and for this meal, they include Shrimp, Limes, Jalapeno Peppers, Shallots, Garlic, Mint, Cilantro, Watercress, Red Onion, Radishes, Cabbage, Ginger Root, Coconut, Scallions, Lemons, Bean Sprouts, Peanuts, Carrot Juice, Carrots, Snow Peas, Red Pepper, Green Pepper, Bok Choy, and Bananas. And as always, I'll be shopping the day before the dinner, so that I can do some of the preparations the evening before.
