Grilled shrimp is a great way to get a shrimp recipe to the next level. We punch it up even more with a vegetable salad. This is also a perfect appetizer recipe if you are planning to taste the wonderful flavors of European cuisine.
Grilling shrimp is very easy. You just need to remember that once the shrimp turns pinkish then, it is ready to be flipped and grilled on the other side. Overcooking the shrimp will result in a rubbery texture that won’t be appetizing to eat.
Adding a teaspoon of honey and chili flakes will create a lovely shine and kick to the grilled shrimp salad — which will elevate the flavor profile of shrimp. Adding rosemary sprigs would be an awesome idea too! The shrimp takes on woody notes from the rosemary while retaining all of their subtle sweetness.
As for the salad, you may add cooked snow peas and green beans for an exciting crunch in the salad. You may use oranges, lime, and even grapefruit juice instead of the basic lemon as an acid in the dressing. Radicchio leaves would be a perfect substitution for the romaine lettuce.
