Grilled Shrimp with Avocado Citrus Salad

Miss Mevi's grilled shrimps with avocado and citrus saladHello everyone!

With this weather we all must take care to avoid catching the flu. To do so, we can drink much more liquids and also we should add more C vitamin to our diet, like citrus fruits. Today’s recipe is ideal for this, and also it’s delicious!

It has shrimps, citrus fruits and of course, avocados! ;O)

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 oz. cleaned and deveined large shrimp
  • 1 cup orange wheels, peeled and cut in rounds ¼ inch thick
  • 1 cup ruby red grapefruit wheels, peeled and cut in rounds ¼ inch thick
  • Mixed greens eg: Baby Arugula, Boston bib and Frisee
  • 2 ripe Avocados from Mexico, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 3 tsp. finely chopped, fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. dried thyme
  • 1½ tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

DIRECTIONS:

Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1½ tsp. oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle shrimp with dry ingredients. Add shrimp to pan; cook 3 minutes or until shrimp are done (pink), stirring frequently. Remove from pan; keep warm.
Place shrimp on top of plated bed of greens and citrus. Drizzle with dressing. Finish with cracked black pepper.
Try this salad with a Basil Oil Dressing that can be prepared ahead of time: store ½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil and infuse with fresh Basil leaves. Let sit overnight. Drizzle atop salad through a strainer.
Or a Dijon Vinaigrette: Combine 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, ½ cup white balsamic vinegar, ⅓ cup fresh orange juice, 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard and a pinch of sugar. Blend and adjust to taste. Use as desired.

I just ate that last weekend, and it’s just exquisite. Please share your comments once you make it. And also send me your pictures once served!

Until the next time!
