To make the dressing, mash the chilli and sugar using a pestle and mortar. Add the garlic oil, lime juice and 3 tbsp water and stir together. Set aside.
Get the kettle on, put the noodles into a bowl, then cover with boiling water. Leave to stand for 10 mins until tender, then drain and divide between 2 bowls.
Mix the shrimp and veg together and divide between the bowls, too. Finish by topping each salad with the herbs and peanuts, then pour over the dressing to serve.
