Instructions
  1. Put bulgur in a saucepan and add 2 3/4 cups water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until the bulgur is tender and all the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Spread bulgur out onto a flat dish, and let cool slightly.
  2. Combine onion, carrot, tomato, corn, cucumber, and shrimp in a large salad bowl. Add the bulgur and toss to combine.
  3. To make the dressing, put the oil, lime juice, garlic, chili pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined. Stir the dressing into the salad, tossing to coat all the ingredients evenly. Serve the salad immediately, or cover and refrigerate.
