Quick and Easy Shrimp Salad
The other night we felt like having something light for dinner. So we made a roasted shrimp salad with bacon! Everything tastes better with bacon..doesn't it? This recipe is super easy and quick. All you have to do is:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Take about 12 shrimp that have been cleaned and shelled. Sprinkle olive oil over the shrimp just so they are coated well. Season them with "Nantucket Rub" or if you don't have this just use a combination of garlic powder, tarragon, dill, lemon pepper seasoning, paprika, and fennel seeds, and salt. Place on a baking sheet and pop them in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes or until they turn pink and opaque.
Meanwhile in a skillet cook 4 pieces of bacon until crispy.
In a large salad bowl, combine red leaf lettuce and arugula and a handful of cherry tomatoes.
To make the dressing please refer to my previous recipe for Cobb salad..I used the horseradish dressing which works fantastic with the shrimp.
Combine the bacon and shrimp with the lettuce and dressing and toss well.
