Shrimp Salad

The other night for dinner I decided to make a shrimp salad. I had these lovely brioche buns from fresh direct and I thought a shrimp salad would complement it. I used a large bag of cleaned frozen shrimp. Frozen shrimp can be a great deal when you go to the store most shrimp has been previously frozen and your paying an extra fee for them to defrost it. I ran the shrimp under cold water for 5 minutes and removed the tails.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Make sure to dry the shrimp. I sprinkled the shrimp with old bay seasonings and olive oil and roasted in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes until the shrimp turns pink.

After the shrimp has cooled I chop it into bite size pieces. Zest 1 whole lemon and use all the juice from the lemon. I used 4 stalks of celery chopped and 4 scallions I combined all of this and then added Miracle Whip. I did not want to much mayonnaise but just enough to coat the shrimp. Before serving I cut the buns in half and toasted for 2 minutes so it would be slightly warm.

It was a delicious light dinner and also made a lovely salad the next day.
