I’m well known for my entrée salads and consider them to be an art form. I think this one speaks for itself and the Tessamae’s ketchup is the secret ingredient that takes the dressing over the top.
Whole30 Shrimp Nicoise Salad with Remoulade Sauce MAGIC ELIXIRS
For the shrimp:
- 1 ½ pounds shrimp, deveined, tail on, shell off
- 4 cloves of garlic
- Juice of one lemon
- Zest of one lemon
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 2 Tbsp clarified butter (or more if needed)
Make a marinade with all of the ingredients except for the shrimp and the clarified butter. Whisk ingredients together until combined. Marinate the shrimp for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, remove the shrimp from the marinade and brush off excess. Heat clarified butter in a large sauté pan and place the shrimp in a single layer (if your pan is not big enough, you may have to cook them in batches, add additional clarified butter between batches) Sauté for 2-3 minutes a side. (if you do in two batches, add 2 Tbsp of butter).
Sweet Potato crisps
- 2 large Japanese Sweet Potatoes, peeled
- 1/3 cup coconut Oil for frying
- Kosher Salt to taste
Cut the sweet potato as thin as possible. Heat the oil to hot, but not smoky. Fry one in the coconut oil to test it out. You want to fry until crispy.
Once you know how long it takes to get them nice and crispy, fry the remaining slices. Remove and set on paper towel. Sprinkle with salt.
