Fresh Direct recently had fresh, wild rock shrimps on sale, so, naturally, I bought a pound of it. Inspired by Maine lobster rolls, I used the rock shrimps to make a simple salad last weekend — the result was a delicious, lovely salad lunch!
For the salad, I finely chopped about a stalk and a half of celery, and half a red onion.
When cooked, I put the shrimps in a large glass bowl, and then mixed in the chopped celery and red onion.
To season, I added about 1/4 cup of mayonnaise (I like Spectrum Organic Mayonnaise with Olive Oil), 1/4 cup of organic mustard, 2 cloves of garlic, minced, juice of 1/2 lemon, and seasoned with salt, pepper, and a hit of cayenne pepper. It’s good to taste and adjust the flavor as necessary.
Mix well, and lay atop a bowl of salad — no dressing necessary! I had a box of pre-washed salad on hand. My favorite go-to box of salad is Earthbound Farm Organic Herb Blend, which is a great mix salad that contains dill — perfect companion for the wild rock shrimps!
