Lemon Shrimp Salad
Fresh, healthy and delicious taste !!
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 2
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 8-10 wild caught shrimp ( I used the Gulf type cause they're big )
  • 1 carrot
  • Grape tomatos
  • Organic german mustard
  • 1 sicilian lime
  • Spring mix salad
  • Coconut Oil
  • Black peppercorns with lemon ( "Frontier" brand )
  • Himalayan pink salt
  • Pine nuts
  • Organic olive Oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Garlic
  1. Rince the shrimps really well, clean it and if you wish leave the shell ( I cannot eat it much, but actually it is good to lower the cholesterol level, so if you can manage to eat some, it's not bad for you at all! ).
  2. Here it goes my first TIP: soak the shrimps into a mix of water and lemon drops and some slices of it, so you gonna get rid of the "ocean/fish smell". Leave it for about 10 minutes.
  3. While shrimps are soaking, peel one carrot using a grinder.
  4. After 10 min, drain the shrimps and reserve.
  5. I use a garlic press to turn a beautiful garlic clove into a kind of puree, only one teeth is enough, so press it into the pan with hot coconut oil and add the shrimps and lime slices.
  6. Season it with salt and pepper ( i always use pink Himalayan salt and the "Frontier" black peppercorn with lemon for this recipe ) and grind some lime zest and squeeze its juice ( of half lime ) on top of it.
  7. Take care not to overcook the shrimps, they should be done in about 6 minutes and then reserve it to cool down.
  9. Take the remaining coconut oil from the cooking process and add a teaspoon of german mustard and a touch of balsamic vinegar and olive oil to the mix.
  10. PLATING:
  11. The mix green salad should be in a big bowl before serving, what makes it easier to dress and to add the carrots.
  12. Plate the salad adding the cooled down shrimps on top of it - i like to spread some pine nuts and add some grape tomatos to finish!
I swapped the fresh mozzarela to the grape tomatoes cause I'm trying to be away from cheese so this is the main difference between this salad and the previous posted.


Fresh, Organic ingredients!!

Soak for about 10 minutes

Carrots are so good for you! with their high dietary fibers helping on intestine function and stimulating Vitamin A production, so good for vision and skin.

Garlic is such a good antioxidant

Garlic, Salt, Pepper and lemon juice/zest and DONE!

VERY important: reserve to cool down


Summer or Fall, we must eat salads the whole year!

Hope you enjoy it!

    I think you are a fantastic addition to OYL dear Carol. This dish entails many of my faves, mustard, and garlic, which I think is a remedy for many ailments and colds, etc, and tomatoes go so good with these flavors. Actually like Jimmy Buffett, I kinda like ‘the smell of shrimp beginnin’ to boil’, haha. Maybe it’s this weird early coldfront, but a little tropical scene hits the spot about now. Hope you don’t mind, but in a loving way, can’t help but get a great ‘girl from Ipanema’ feeling about you. Your poetry about the F-word and freedom is a state of mind really moved me. Organized/Freedom is not an oxymoron, but rather a sweet paradox where the soul of poetry lies. It was mysteriously provocative wondering about saying ‘I love you’ in vain ever? I could spend hours pondering that delicious conundrum, you know James Brown was asked what ‘soul’ was, and he thought and answered ‘the truth’. I think you have a special gift at seeing and expressing the truth and I love it. Write on!! You are good, very good.
