“Popcorn” & Shrimp Salad
Hey guys, welcome back to the fit men cook kitchen! Today’s recipe is really special, we are making a delicious shrimp salad.
This is a very easy and tasty salad recipe. The hardest thing for you is to determine which type of protein you want to eat. You can add chicken if you’re more chicken salad type, or you can add cooked shrimp.
There’s also a vegan option for you guys. You can easily swap out the chicken or shrimps and substitute in some roasted tempeh, tofu or roasted cauliflower.
I love chicken, but for this recipe I personally prefer shrimps. If you can’t find fresh shrimps in your store, use frozen shrimps, it’s okay. In the case you buy shrimps with shells on them, it’s very easy to remove them. Pull the main part off and remove the tail of the shell.
This shrimp salad recipe is a mix of shrimps, mache rosettes or mixed greens, avocado and popcorn. Great combo full of protein.
You will need 6oz of shrimps. Prepare them in boiling water, in an air fryer or whichever way you like the most.
Use a bowl to mix other ingredients, and toss the shrimps on the top. Garnish with some fresh herbs or how you like the most, and enjoy your meal.
This easy shrimp meal is a great recipe that should be part of every recipe book.
Low-carb Tip: Instead of using croutons on your salad, use air-popped popcorn! It has similar nutritional benefits to brown rice and will actually help you feel full. Two brands to consider using are Skinny Pop and Fit Pop.
