shrimp and avocado salad

Shrimp and avocado salad is a follow up from last month’s post. The inspiration for this dish comes from the caesar granita I made; it was placed over freshly shucked oysters.  However, not everyone is a fan of oysters and I get that.  This is another way to enjoy my Caesar granita thus giving you, dear reader options. It may be Spring here in the Maritimes, but we seem to be catching the raw end of the jet stream producing cooler temperatures than normal.  If you are having a lovely Spring, then this dish is for you!  I love the cool crunchy bits of the granita and a bit of heat being soothed by the avocado. Everything in this dish screams Spring!

radish, thinly sliced
fennel, thinly sliced
arugula/rocket, rinsed and dried
extra-virgin olive oil
Caesar granita
poached shrimp (about 4 per serving)
avocado, sliced

When shopping for radish, look for small bunches as the little ones have less of a bite.  To build the salad start with lining the plate sparsely with arugula then add fennel.  Arrange avocado and radish slices followed by the poached shrimp.  Add a splash of extra-virgin olive oil and season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.  Top with the granita and serve immediately.

The Culinary Chase’s Note: I used jumbo shrimp (21-25 per bag) but you can also go larger if you like.   Enjoy!
