This week I have a super easy shrimp and orange salad recipe for you.  This fun family meal recipe is perfect for those nights when you want something different and don’t have much in the refrigerator to work with.  All you need for this step by step recipe is some frozen shrimp, oranges, lettuce, and if lucky some avocado. This recipe serve 4.


24 large shrimp – uncooked

Lettuce makings (assorted like red leaf, red chard, kale, radicchio etc)

2 Oranges

1 Avocado – sliced (near time of serving so it does not discolor)

2 garlic cloves – minced

1/8 cup canola oil

1/4 tsp dried red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp Cajun spices (such as McCormick brand)

1 Tbsp olive oil (for fry pan)

feta cheese


In a mixing bowl combine canola oil, juice of one orange, red pepper flakes, Cajun spice, and garlic. Stir well.

Wash shrimp, remove shell, and pat dry.
