Ingredients for the shrimp:
8 pieces of large, de-shelled shrimp
3 garlic cloves, diced
1 bunch parsley chopped fine
Good quality extra virgin olive oil
Method: Mix the garlic, parsley, olive oil and salt & pepper together and marinate the shrimp for 3 hours. On a hot fire, grill the shrimp for three minutes on each side or until just cooked through.
Ingredients for the dressing:
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon white balsamic
1 shallot diced
1 tablespoon honey
In a small bowl, place the Dijon mustard, curry powder, shallots, honey and the vinegar. With a whisk, slowly incorporate the olive oil until thick.
Arrange the salad:
On a platter arrange the baby romaine hearts with sliced cherry tomatoes and shredded carrots. Place the grilled shrimp on top and drizzle with the curry vinaigrette.
