Steps

Step 1

Season shrimp with low sodium Cajun seasoning and olive oil, then set aside to marinate while you prepare the salad.

Step 2

Mix together all of the salad ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

Step 3

Mix together the ingredients for the dressing in a separate bowl.

Step 4

Set a carbon steel skillet on medium high heat. Once hot, lightly spray with avocado oil, then add the shrimp.  Sear and toss the shrimp until it is cooked through, about 6 – 8 minutes.

Step 5

Bring it all together!

Evenly divide the salad, shrimp and dressing among meal containers and enjoy!  Pro-tips: (a) keep the dressing separate and add it only when you’re going to eat the salad; (b) only add the avocado the morning that you’re going to eat the salad.
