Shrimp with Romaine

If you are having a stressful week, I recommend this easy-as-pie shrimp salad recipe. Four ingredients, and 5 minutes time and you will be enjoying a gourmet caliber feast that will make onlookers drool.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt or 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 lb. fresh or frozen large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 hearts of romaine lettuce, halved lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 lemons
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt or salt and freshly ground black pepper
In small bowl whisk together the 1/4 cup olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Set aside. On four 10-inch metal skewers, thread shrimp, leaving 1/4-inch space between each shrimp. Brush oil mixture over cut sides of lettuce and the shrimp. For a charcoal grill, grill shrimp on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 5 to 8 minutes or until shrimp are opaque, turning once halfway through grilling. Grill lettuce, cut side down, for 2 to 4 minutes or until grill marks develop on the lettuce and lettuce is slightly wilted. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Cover and grill shrimp and lettuce as above.) Place lettuce in serving bowl. Remove shrimp from the skewers. Place in bowl with lettuce and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Squeeze the juice of one of the lemons over the shrimp and lettuce and drizzle with additional olive oil. Sprinkle with additional kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cut the remaining lemon in wedges and serve with the salad. Makes: 4 servings
