Garlic Shrimp Caesar Salad

Continuing with the salad theme this summer…this is my garlic shrimp caesar salad, which is really simple and quick to make. I was originally planning to do a traditional grilled chicken caesar, but found 25 already skewered shrimp in my grocery store for just $5.00!  I was very happy with this find!

*NOTE: I totally took a MAJOR shortcut for this one and used the salad in a bag package.  Normally, I would do it all on my own, but I was prepping to have 15 people over for dinner the next day, so I went with it this time.

Start by seasoning the shrimp:

  • I seasoned by sides of the skewers with s&p and garlic powder.  (Again, if I had more time, I would have marinated the shrimp with fresh chopped garlic.)

  • I then drizzled the shrimp with EVOO.

  • I grilled the shrimp using my Cusinart Griddler.  (You can use a grill or grillpan if you don’t own a griddler.  If you want one, get it here: .)  It only takes about 4 minutes per side.  (Try not to overcook the shrimp!)

  • Meanwhile, put together the salad.  I used romaine, croutons, and grated parmesan cheese.

  • When the shrimp are finished, serve on top of the salad.

  • Drizzle with Garlic Caesar dressing.
