Yam Kung Ten ("Dancing" Shrimp Salad) ยำกุ้งเต้น

I ate this salad for the first time on Jomtien Beach on 16 Apr 2006. I have no formal recipe, but the ingredients were obvious. It was a simple salad of fresh, live small shrimp, lemongrass, and roasted, crushed chiles mixed with fish sauce and lime juice. It was very good with a cold beer!
