Mark is heading out of town on Wednesday and will be out for 10 days … what a perfect time for me to give myself a little break and get my food stuff back on track!
First up will be this yummy salad … bonus because I have everything on hand! Yes!
For a while, there I would call this a “shrimp salad” but it’s not really a salad, per se, nor is it a salsa … so I don’t know what to call it! It’s just a Whole30/Paleo Approved Shrimp with Mango and Cucumbers ….
So, let’s talk about the shrimp itself, ok? This bag is from Trader Joe’s. It’s $10.99 for a full pound. It is, by far, the best tasting, cleanest shrimp I’ve found in a LOONG time … I was hooked on Costco for a while there but then had this for New Years Eve a few years back and I’ve since been stuck on it! And the price? Never changed. Always the same.
Ok, let’s get to the recipe!
1/2 pound of cooked shrimp, peeled and those pesky tails removed! I prefer to cut in half or 1/3 to make smaller bite size
1/2 cup of cucumbers, seeds scraped out if really watery and chopped (tip: just buy the english cucumbers!)
1/2 mango, chopped
1/4 cup of canned pineapple, drained, and chopped
1/4 of a red pepper, diced (I use the mini peppers too if that’s all I have!)
1/4 of a small red onion, diced
1/2 smallish jalapeno, seeds and membranes removed, diced
1/4 cup of parsley leaves, chopped
3 tbs olive oil
juice from 1 lime
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp honey
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Place shrimp, cucumbers, mango, pineapple, red pepper, onion, jalapeno and parsley in larger bowl.
In a separate smaller bowl, mix all the other ingredients, whisking to incorporate well.
Pour the liquid over the shrimp mixture, cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes or so to allow everyone to do a meet and greet and get friendly with each other.
Serve cold and enjoy!
