Equipment

  • Grill or grill pan

  • Skewers (metal or wooden)

  • Large mixing bowl

  • Cutting board

  • Knife

  • Measuring spoons

  • Tongs

Ingredients

  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • Salt to taste

  • Black pepper to taste

  • 4 cups mixed salad greens

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1 avocado, sliced

  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

  • Lemon wedges for garnish

Instructions

1

Start by marinating the shrimp with olive oil, paprika, salt, and black pepper.

2

While the shrimp is marinating, preheat the grill on medium-high heat.

3

Thread the shrimp onto skewers and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side until they are opaque and slightly charred.

4

In a large bowl, combine the salad greens, cherry tomatoes, avocado slices, red onion, and cilantro.

5

Once the shrimp are grilled, add them to the salad.

6

Toss everything gently and garnish with lemon wedges. Serve immediately with your choice of dressing.

Notes

I recommend marinating the shrimp for at least 30 minutes before grilling, to infuse them with flavor. Using skewers for grilling shrimp prevents them from falling through the grates. If using wooden skewers, soaking them in water for 30 minutes prior to grilling prevents them from burning. Opt for fresh, high-quality ingredients; the freshness of the shrimp and vegetables is vital. Add a pinch of chili flakes to the marinade if you prefer a spicy kick. Don’t overcook the shrimp; they cook quickly and can become rubbery if overdone.
