Ingredients

  • 1 lb peeled shrimp deveined
  • 8-10 leaves romaine lettuce shredded
  • 1/2 - 1 large English cucumber quartered
  • 1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 - 1 large orange pepper diced
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup red onion diced
  • 1 ear of fresh corn cooked and removed from cob. Or 3/4 cup of canned or frozen corn.
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce

Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette

  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger minced
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 3 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

Instructions

  • Mix shrimp and teriyaki sauce in a bowl to marinate.
  • Prep the veggies. Add romaine lettuce to two bowls and then layer the remaining veggies on top of each bowl.
  • Heat a large skillet to medium / medium low and add shrimp. Cook for 3 minutes on one side and then flip each shrimp to cook on other side for another 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl add all of the ingredients for the vinaigrette and whisk.
  • When shrimp is done, remove from pan and top on salad.
  • Dress with vinaigrette, to taste.

Notes

Peel and Devein Shrimp: Pull the main part of the shell off first, and then then tail (unless you'd like to keep the tail on, which I sometimes do). Devein by using a paring knife and cut a slit along the top of the shrimp and then remove all of the vein. 
Use Raw Frozen or Cooked Frozen Shrimp:  Thaw the shrimp by either letting thaw in the fridge overnight or place shrimp in a colander and run cold water of it until thawed. Marinate the same and then cook raw frozen for 2-3 minutes on each side or frozen for 60-90 seconds. 
Substitute: Whatever veggies you have!  Add more or less of anything you'd like and make it your own!
