  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (freshly squeezed)

Yield: 4 Servings | Prep time: 15 minutes |

Instructions

1. Put pre-cooked shrimp in a large bowl and add cold water, let it thaw for about 10-15 minutes until no longer frozen. Drain and pat dry with paper towel, to avoid making the dressing watery.  If using raw shrimp, simply heat a pan with a bit of oil over medium heat, add defrosted shrimp, and sauté for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn pink and opaque.
2. Prepare shrimp salad dressing. In a small bowl, combine dressing ingredients: mayo, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, garlic, pepper, dill, hot sauce and water. Stir well.

Quick, Easy, Tastes Great

Guest
This salad was super easy and tasted so fresh. I sauteed the shrimp but grilling would be great, too. I let them cool for a bit and tossed the whole business together. I've found a new staple for busy weeknights or a quick Sunday lunch!
