Grilled Shrimp Salad

Grilled Shrimp Salad

Louie-style dressing remade! Still pink and creamy, only friendlier to the waistline. As a final touch, sprinkle toasted walnuts to add some delicious crunch!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons reduced fat mayonnaise (preferably canola based)
  • 2 tablespoons cocktail sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (possibly more to taste)
  • Pinch of salt (optional, to taste)
  • Pinch of sugar (optional, to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon crushed or minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 16 large prawns, peeled and deveined
  • Salt and pepper (optional)
  • Shredded romaine lettuce
  • 8 Cherry tomatoes, cut in half (2 for each serving)
  • 2 Hard-boiled eggs, in lengthwise quarters
  • Kalamata olives (optional)
  • Toasted California walnuts (optional)

Directions

For the Dressing:

  1. Combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, cocktail sauce and lime juice in a medium-small bowl and whisk to combine. Taste to see if it needs more lime.
  2. Add salt and sugar to taste as well, if desired. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

For the Prawns:

  1. Combine the lime juice and garlic in a pie dish. Whisk in the oil. Add the prawns and swish them around until they all come into contact with the marinade. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, and cover the pan. Refrigerate for a minimum or 4 hours (overnight is okay).
  2. Assemble the salad ingredients on four serving plates. Preheat a grill to medium-high – or turn on the broiler. Cook the prawns for 2 minutes, then turn and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on the other side. They are done when opaque. Transfer the hot prawns to the top of the salad – 4 prawns per serving.
  3. Top with a generous dollop of the dressing (and olives and walnuts if desired), and serve.
