RECIPE

12 ingredients

15 minutes

Yields: 2

INGREDIENTS

  • 9 ozs Shrimp (large, peeled, deveined)
  • 2 tsp Jerk Seasoning
  • 1/2 Lime (juiced, zested)
  • 1 tbsp Avocado Oil
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Pink Himalayan Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)
  • 4 cups Mixed Greens (arugula, spinach, or other)
  • 1/4 cup Red Onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 cup Seedless Watermelon
  • 1/2 cup Blueberries
  • 1/4 cup Goat Cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Add the shrimp to a medium-sized bowl along with the jerk seasoning. Toss to combine and let it marinate for about 10 minutes, while you prepare the rest of the salad.
  2. In a small jar add the lime juice and zest, olive oil, salt, pepper, and maple syrup. Shake to combine.
  3. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the avocado oil and then add the shrimp. Cook for 3 minutes each side, or until cooked through. Remove and set aside.
  4. Toss the mixed greens, red onion, watermelon, blueberries, and goat cheese into a big bowl. Add the lime dressing and mix well.
  5. Divide into plates. Add the shrimp and enjoy!

NOTES

  • Leftovers? Refrigerate salad and shrimp in separate sealed containers for up to two days. The dressing can be refrigerated for up to five days.
  • Serving Size: One serving is equal to approximately 2 1/2 cups of salad and 4 to 5 shrimp.
  • No maple syrup? Use honey instead.
