The perfect main dish for brunch, a salad for dinner, or an appetizer! This New Orleans-inspired salad will please everyone who loves shrimp served in a deliciously refined way.

Incorporating the traditional 'Holy Trinity' of Cresent City cooking (with a modest, yet elegant modification), celery, Bell pepper and, in this recipe, shallots, you lay a foundation for a robust, yet delicate dish which is equally at home in a 5 star restaurant or a bayou cabin.

You can buy the shrimp already peeled and de-veined, which will save you some prep time. But, at the very least, you want to boil the shrimp yourself because the addition of the crab boil will help put this salad over the taste-bud top.

You can cut this recipe in exactly half - or double it - and your results will be identical: perfect and perfectly delicious!

As the great Chef Austin Leslie would say: "When in doubt - serve this salad!"

Ингредиенты

      Amos ~ Finally an occasion befitting this recipe, and yes - it was GORGEOUS! You always get me trying new (to me) things ~ ingredients as well was preparation and cooking. I learn a lot just reading your postings and tutorials, and much more as I prepare them. So glad I made Creole Shrimp Salad and have another favorite in my salad reportoire.

        Hi, SF - I was hoping this would catch your eye and I expect your usual critical review. I find this a perfect 'all purpose ' salad, hope you will. as well. And you are right: it is extremely easy, especially if you buy shimp that has been flash frozen, shelled and de-veined. You MUST use the boil recipe, however, that flavors the shimps beautifully. Looking forward to hearing from you, Chef - best, Amos

          Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! (Can a salad be gorgeous?) It doesn't seem that involved either, though your pictorials always make things seem easy. A definite Try Soon recipe for me!
