Method: 

Put shrimp, ginger soy sauce and garlic into a large bowl, toss well, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Put noodles into a large bowl of warm water and set aside to let soften for 5 minutes; drain well. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, add soaked noodles and cook for 3 minutes; drain again and set aside.

Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Using a slotted spoon, transfer shrimp from bowl to a baking sheet and arrange them in a single layer; discard remaining marinade. Broil until shrimp are just cooked through and pink, about 4 minutes, then transfer to a platter.

Arrange rice noodles, lettuce leaves, basil, mint, cilantro, carrots, green onions, cucumbers and peanuts on the platter with the shrimp. Have everyone assemble their own lettuce wraps, piling some of each ingredient onto a lettuce leaf, then rolling it up to form a package before eating.
