Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked shrimp devained (200g)
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • 1 tsp of garlic granules
  • 1/4 tsp of himalayan pink salt
  • 8 cherry tomatoes washed
  • 1 cup of arugula (rocket) a small bag, washed (90g)
  • 1/2 cup of cucumber sliced and halved (50g)
  • 1 small red onion sliced

For the dressing

  • 2 tbsp of yacon syrup/stevia/monkfruit sweetener
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp of black pepper
  • 1 tsp of parsley
  • 1/4 tsp of himalayan pink salt

Instructions

  • In a medium sized bowl coat the shrimp with the garlic granules, pink salt and black pepper and set aside
  • Add all of the ingredients for the dressing to a high speed blender and blitz.
  • In a salad bowl of your choice arrange the rocket along with the tomatoes, red onion and cucumber slices.
  • Add the shrimp to the leafy salad bowl and toss everything together.
  • Drizzle the garlic dressing all over the salad and enjoy!!

Notes

  • Feel free to use yacon syrup, stevia or monkfruit sweetener.
  • To make this recipe super simple and quick make sure the shrimp is already cooked.
  • If you purchase raw shrimp you will need to toss it in a frying/skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes until pink.
  • Rocket is what some countries know as arugula same thing!!
  • Again Shrimp and prawns are interchangeable
  • I like to use an oval sloping bowl for the salad - starting with the rocket/arugula and then adding the rest of the ingredients before tossing them together with a final drizzle of the sweet dressing. However, you can use whatever bowl you want !
