4 TB                 fresh basil, chopped

1/4 c                 grated parmesan cheese

2 c                    salad greens, per person

 

 

Dressing:

1 tsp                dried oregano

1/4 c                grated parmesan cheese

1/2 c                extra virgin olive oil

Method:

If shrimp is frozen, heat in a cast iron skillet until thawed and warm. In a large bowl, toss together shrimp, artichokes, red onion and basil. In a small bowl, combine all of the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing ingredients into the bowl with the shrimp mixture and toss. Add 1/4 cup more grated parmesan and toss to combine. Wash, dry and rip about 2 cups of salad greens per person and place on plates. Top with a large scoop or 2 of the shrimp mixture & serve.

Anything that involves frozen shrimp usually makes for a quick and easy meal, and this is no exception. Another perk is that this is super healthy, too! We’ll have to test this simple recipe out soon.
