Ingredients

THE SHRIMP:

  • 16 oz. extra small baby shrimps 100-150/lb., cooked
  • 1 large garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper

OTHER INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup purple onion finely diced
  • 1/2 piece celery stick finely diced
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper finely diced
  • 1/4 cup green onion chopped

THE DRESSING:

  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard-3 tbsps. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 tsps. dill freshly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a pan and cook the shrimps for a couple of minutes. Add in the salt, black pepper, lemon juice and garlic. Continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool down.
  • Meanwhile, dice the other ingredients: celery, red bell pepper, mice garlic, and chop the onions and dill.
  • In a dressing cup or food processor, prepare the dressing.
  • Place shrimps and the other ingredients in a bowl. Pour in the dressing and mix to coat everything well with the salad dressing.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Take care not to overcook the shrimp. It only needs a couple of minutes cooking, if they are overcooked they can become rubbery.
  • Cut the veggies in small dices of even sizes. This will make it easier to eat and the ingredients will be easier to combine.
  • I used a full fat mayo in this recipe as it is much creamier and richer, but you can use a low fat one if you prefer.
  • If you like to add a bit of heat, try adding in some finely chopped fresh jalapeno!
