Ingredients

  • 32 large shrimp
  • 1 clove garlic thinnly sliced
  • 1 tbsp butter optional
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin

Salad

  • 6 cups mixed greens
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 2 tbsp dried cherries
  • 4 tbsp wonton

Tahini Ceasar-Style Dressing

Instructions

Shrimp

  • Heat olive oil and butter over medium heat in a frying pan. Add garlic and stir for 1 minute.
  • Add shrimp to pan and saute. Cook on one side for 2-3 minutes and flip. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes until the shrimp is pink and curls. Remove shrimp from hot pan and set aside.

Salad

  • Combine salad greens, parmesan cheese, wonton strips, dried cherries, and shrimp.
  • Add dressing and lightly toss. Serve immediately.

Notes

The key to keeping shrimp tender is to not overcook. Saute until just pink and it becomes firm and curls. Once you see the color and shape change, take the pan off the heat.
Don't have dried cherries? No problem, just add any dried fruit.
