SS #8 - Shrimp Salad


It was Jan's turn to choose this week's salad. Jan is jgk on Slow Travel, and her blog is Keep your Feet in the Street.

Simple, summery and good.

Shrimp Salad


1 pound extra large shrimp (16-20) fresh, wild if you can find them.
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
¼ cup mayo
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, tarragon or parsley.
1 large stalk celery chopped
¼ large red pepper chopped
salt and pepper


Steam the shrimp for about 5 minutes in water with Old Bay.

When cool enough to handle, remove shells and chop into about 5 or 6 pieces per shrimp.

Mix the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl. Toss in the chopped shrimp and chill.

Serve over a bed of lettuce of your choice.

We loved, loved, loved this salad!

I forgot to get the red bell pepper, so I chopped up a tomato instead. I used both parsley and tarragon and really liked the flavor. I didn't get the huge shrimp - since they were going to be cut up anyway, I used smaller ones. I also added some chopped red onion.

Here are the ingredients:

And the salad before we gobbled it up:

Oh! I know this was probably supposed to serve four, but we ate it all for dinner! Now you can see why I can't lose weight!

Looks great. I can't wait to make this.

I also loved this salad and could have eaten as much as you did but I had to share. :)

I was a delicious salad! I could have eaten the whole thing I suppose, but we had a potato with it.

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Nancy, your salad looks very delicious. I like how you always layout your ingredients and take a photo. And your plate is very beautiful too.

I agree that this was a very tasty salad and I'll be making it again soon.

Have a great Sunday!

Nancy, thanks for laying out all the ingredients. I've been hopping from one salad maker blog post to another. Just found out what Old Bay seasoning is and now the hunt will be on. I'm making this salad one of these nights this week. Looks so great and perfect for this season. Love the photos.

Amen to the comment about eating twice the serving size.


I thought it made 3 decent servings, so I have lunch for tomorrow - what you don't see in my pics is that I had to take David's part out before I added the red pepper, but it was easy to do. Great taste.

G'day matey - I did you a blog post. :)

It's so much fun to see what everyone does with each recipe. Love your idea of putting tomatoes in this. And red onions!
