Wild Rock Shrimp Salad

7 Mar

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!

The rock shrimp arrived cleaned -- makes my life easier!

For the salad, I finely chopped about a stalk and a half of celery, and half a red onion.

After rinsing and pat-drying the shrimp, I cooked them in a drizzle of olive oil.  Rock shrimp cook quickly — I kept stirring the shrimp, and cooked them for about 4 minutes.

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!
