- 4 slices bacon, coarsely chopped
- 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium until browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to paper towels. Remove all but 1 tablespoon fat from skillet; return to medium heat. Season shrimp with salt and pepper; cook in a single layer, flipping once, until opaque and firm to the touch, 3 to 4 minutes.
Whisk together zest and juice, oil, and cilantro; season with salt and pepper. Toss greens with half of dressing; transfer to a platter. Top with shrimp, tomatoes, eggs, avocado, and bacon. Season with salt and pepper; serve, with remaining dressing.
