Ingredients

  • 10 oz raw shrimp
  • 1 tsp garlic chopped
  • 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 4 oz romaine chopped
  • 4 oz European cucumber chopped
  • 6 oz bell pepper
  • 4 oz cherry tomatoes halved
  • 4 oz avocado cubed
  • 2 oz roasted corn
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp traditional Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp honey

Instructions

  • Peel and devein the shrimp.
  • Add parsley, garlic, lemon zest, ⅛ teaspoon of salt, and ⅛ teaspoon of pepper to a small bowl and stir. Add shrimp and let marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Roast the bell peppers for 15-20 minutes. Once done, move the cooked peppers to a plate. Then put the shrimp on the same baking sheet used and roast for about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Cut the roasted bell peppers into 1-inch pieces and save for assembly.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining salt, pepper, olive oil, mustard, honey, and lemon juice.
  • In a large salad bowl, combine cucumber, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, bell peppers, avocado, corn, and shrimp. Toss well with the dressing. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Shrimp salad is often served slightly chilled, but it’s fine to keep the dish at room temperature too (just don’t leave it out for more than 2 hours).
  • Once drizzled with the dressing, the salad should be served right away to maintain the crispness of the lettuce.
