Fresh Shrimp Salad: Start the New Year’s Right

January 02, 2013

Start the New year’s right with this Fresh Shrimp Salad. In just 30 minutes, you will have a perfect healthy main dish to serve over greens, eat with crackers or put on a sandwich. Four ounces of boiled or steamed shrimp contains just 112 calories. This serving provides nearly 24 g of protein and 1.2 g of fat–only 0.3 g of which is saturated. Shrimp contains no carbohydrates. Shrimp has been said to build strong bones, stabilize blood sugars, boost energy and fight depression. My three kids loved this recipe, and it’s perfect for dinner or lunchtime.

Fresh Shrimp Salad

Prep: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
11/2 pound medium shrimp, peeled, deveined, cooked and tails removed
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
2 green onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup Italian parsley, finely chopped
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1. Combine shrimp and remaining ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well. Chill at least 30 minutes. Serve over mixed greens, arugula, crackers, or on hoagie rolls with lettuce and tomato.

What a great way to serve shrimp. So much better than drowning it in mayo!

I love how quick shrimp is to prepare (or even faster if you buy it pre-cooked!) - it's definitely a weeknight go-to in our house. This salad looks pretty fresh and flavorful to me! :-)
