Jerk Shrimp Salad with Kiwi Vinaigrette

So yesterday I made this simple little Jerk Shrimp Salad with Kiwi Vinaigrette. It was pretty tasty. I got rave reviews from the family on the shrimp and my husband told me I’m like a restaurant. I’m pretty sure he liked it. Anywho, here’s the recipe if you like a super fresh, tasty salad. Bon Appetit!

You will need:

2-4 cups of raw shrimp (thawed)

2 tbsp. Jerk Seasoning for shrimp

4 cups of baby greens (or any type of greens you desire)

1 avocado-cut into chunks

1 bell pepper- chopped

1 english cucumber- peeled and sliced

4 kiwi- fuzzy skin removed

1 shallot- minced small

1 tbsp. Red wine vinegar

1 tbsp. Olive oil

cracks of pepper

Season Shrimp with salt and jerk seasoning- set aside. Remove fuzzy skins of kiwi, mince shallot. I used a small food processor to puree the kiwi but you could mash them too. Then add kiwi puree, shallot, olive oil, red wine vinegar and cracks of pepper to a small jar (shake up all the ingredients- this is the vinaigrette).

Next, get all the veggies chopped, prepared for the salad and plate. Heat up the grill (I use my Staub grill pan- this thing is pretty awesome). Cook shrimp thoroughly. Add vinaigrette to the salad, then shrimp.

p.s I get my Jerk seasoning blend from a great store- Spice Merchant in Temecula, Ca. Jerk seasoning consists of brown sugar, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, allspice, cinnamon, mustard, nutmeg, ginger, mace, thyme, chili powder and cayenne powder.
