Recipe type: Seafood
Cuisine: Seafood
Serves: 4
  • ~1 lb. large shrimp, deveined, shelled
  • Handful of grape tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded (or any other crunchy lettuce you have on hand)
  • 1 English cucumber, cut in half, julienned
  • ½ red bell pepper, julienned
  • ½ yellow or small red onion, sliced thinly
  • Handful of fresh cilantro leaves
  • Optional: chopped peanuts or almonds
Spicy Chili-Lime Dressing
  • 2 Tb. sweet chili sauce
  • 2 Tb. rice vinegar
  • 2 Tb. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. fresh red chili, minced (less if you don’t want it too spicy)
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • dash kosher salt
  • dash freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a large shallow pan, add about ¾ c. water with a pinch of salt.
  2. Place shrimp in the pan in one layer. Simmer on low for just a few minutes, until the shrimp turn pink. Remove from pan and refrigerate (in one layer), covered, about 30 minutes.
  3. Prepare tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, red pepper, cilantro, onion and place in a large mixing bowl; refrigerate until shrimp are cool.
  4. Mix dressing ingredients in a small bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. When ready to serve, combine the dressing with the salad and shrimp (and top with nuts, if using).
Allow an additional 30 minutes for chilling the shrimp :)
