2 tbsp toasted sesame oil                              
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice                                                                
2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds                          
2 tbsp honey or sugar                                    
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped                        

Shrimp

Juice of 2 lemons
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1 tsp grated ginger

Whisk dressing ingredients in a bowl. Cover/refrigerate. Mix soy sauce, lemon juice, lemon zest and ginger in a shallow dish, add shrimp and stir to coat. Let stand 10 minutes.
Heat oil over medium heat in a nonstick skillet. Cook shrimp until pink, about 4 minutes. Set aside. Mix salad ingredients except noodles in a bowl; toss with dressing. Boil dried rice noodles until al dente, about 4 minutes; drain. Arrange salad on 6 plates and top with shrimp. Place cooked noodles around salad. Sprinkle dried noodles on top.
