1Shrimp Cobb Salad With Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette
Light or not, this salad is loaded with tons of goodies, from roasted shrimp tossed in Emeril’s Essence, crisp bacon bits, goat cheese, corn kernels, eggs and fresh avocado. This all gets tossed in a refreshing, yet tangy cilantro lime vinaigrette. I absolutely loved the kick of heat in the dressing from the jalapeno too, but if you’re not much of a spice person, you can completely omit the jalapeno for a mild dressing.
2Shrimp and Avocado Taco Salad
Even though it does have a rather long list of ingredients this salad should come together quickly. The shrimp cook in 3 minutes then the rest is just making a quick vinaigrette and prepping the other salad ingredients. I really would just love to have this salad on my menu weekly, it’s just that good! Try it and see for yourself! And if you like a little heat just add some cayenne pepper or chipotle powder to the shrimp before cooking it, you can’t go wrong with a nice little kick.
3Chilled Italian Shrimp Tortellini Pasta Salad
This delicious, light shrimp and tortellini salad can be served as a side or main dish, perfect for summer potlucks or pool parties, or anytime you need a pasta salad that isn’t weighed down with heavy mayo. Great to make ahead as the flavors get better the longer it sits. Leftovers are perfect to pack for lunch!
4Shrimp, Arugula, White Bean, Cherry Tomato Salad
This is a summer salad perfect for those midweek cravings for something light yet still filling. And it only takes 20 minutes to make, if that.
You just cook shrimp your favorite way, either sauté or grill. Toss them in a bowl with fresh baby arugula, halved or quartered cherry tomatoes, some white beans, onions, and an olive oil vinaigrette. Easy! The flavors play so well together.
5Spicy Shrimp Burrito Bowls
Shrimp is one of my favorite proteins to eat, and I like cooking with it because of how fast it cooks. The actual base of this meal, the rice, is what takes the longest to cook. The salsa and spicy shrimp only take a few minutes to throw together. I usually start my rice and then wait twenty minutes or so to start the salsa, and then cook the shrimp.
