What can I make with cooked shrimp...
other than shrimp salad? and I guess I could always just throw them on a pasta dish at the end, I just don't want to ruin them by heating again.
I make a cold rice salad with shrimp, bell pepper, cucumber, chopped peeled and seeded tomato, capers, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, fresh basil and oregano. It's a great summer meal. You of course can add (or take away!) anything you like.
How about shrimp tacos? Corn tortillas, some salsa fresca, maybe another cool salsa if you have time to make one (or buy of course), crema. I really like shrimp tacos with a creamy blended tomatillo salsa, AND some fresh tomato salsa. Lots of cilantro sprinkled atop. I made this for a party and my guests were running - no kidding, running - back to grab more! If the shrimp are big, chop them a bit. Some marinated red onion would be a nice touch too for tang.
I make salads:
1. Rice salad; Add them to cooked red rice, red and yellow diced peppers, minced shallots, chick peas, lima beans and a vinaigrette (chopped It parsley, o oil, red wine vinegar).
2. If you have arugula or mesculin salad: Spread lettuce of choice on a platter, lay shrimp over top, add toasted walnuts, sliced pears and some honey pear dressing OR
Spread lettuce on a platter, lay shrimp, add diced cukes, diced tomatoes, toasted pine nuts, crumbled gorgonzola and a gorgonzola or blue cheese dressing. (I make this one when I have cajun BBQ shrimp or any spicy shrimp since the heat of spice and cool of dressing work well).
3. Add to orzo for a pasta salad - add other ingredients: kalamata olives, feta, tomatoes, cukes, red onions, etc
