Summer Shrimp Salad

Leaving shrimp whole makes the presentation of this salad especially beautiful; they can also be chopped and mixed in.

Ingredients

  • 18 jumbo shrimp (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled and deveined
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro, plus sprigs for garnish

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place shrimp on a baking sheet coated with olive-oil cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place in oven, and roast until opaque, about 8 minutes.

  2. Zest limes; squeeze to yield 1/4 cup juice. Combine lime juice, zest, olive oil, cilantro, and remaining salt and pepper.
