Ingredients

  • 1 lb frozen shrimp 21-25, deveined and peeled
  • 1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 bag Caesar salad kit storebought
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese shredded or shaved

Instructions

  • Start by preheating your grill to medium high heat (approx 400 degrees F).
  • Prepare your shrimp by rinsing in cool water to remove any broken tail pieces or large chunks of ice. Pat dry and dump in a gallon zip top bag. Pour the olive oil and lemon pepper over the shrimp. Close the zip top and toss to combine.

  • Once your grill is preheated, lightly oil your grill grates with olive oil or use a grill basket or non stick grill mat to prevent the shrimp from sticking and falling through the grates. Place the shrimp on the grill and close the lid. Cook for 4-6 minutes per side until the shrimp is completely opaque and beautifully pink.

  • While the shrimp cooks, combine all ingredients for the salad in a large bowl. Dish up each portion of salad into individual serving dishes and top with the cooked shrimp. Sprinkle with the additional Parmesan cheese, if desired, and serve.
