Free and Friendly Foods Shrimp Louie Salad

Shrimp Louie Salad

The Papa loves to give me challenges, especially when he knows I’ve never eaten the food to have a mental point of reference. This was one of those times. He’s dropped a few hints over the past several months that he’d love to have a Shrimp Louie Salad. A what? That was my initial response. He told me allll about it using that face that tells you he’s eating some in his head, and enjoying it. I let the hints slide, because have you seen how busy we’ve been lately? However, I did look into it a little to find out what this salad really was all about. It’s a good thing I did because it uses baby shrimp. Part of the reason I was avoiding it was because I didn’t feel like preparing shrimp.

Then along comes Costco. I really can’t say enough good things about that store. It’s clean, it’s huge, and there’s a lot of organic options there. Allergy free options too. Did you know they have baby shrimp? I sure didn’t know. So I snagged a bag and put it in the freezer until I had free time to make this salad…

Then came the croutons. I was in Whole Foods one day, minding my own business, when this bag of croutons screams at me, “Hey! Look at me!! I’m allergy friendly, and Kid Two can eat me!!” I did a double take. What’s that mister crouton? My child can eat you? Here, please, get in my cart. WAIT. You’re basically beans and corn. Really?! You can still get in the cart though.

You see, Kid Two hasn’t had croutons in… I can’t remember how long, or if he’s ever had them. Shrimp, check. Croutons, check. It was time to make a Shrimp Louie Salad come to life!

Lemon Garlic Shrimp

You know Kid Two loves shrimp right? I think I’ve said this before. Well, it was time to cook up some more, but with a new twist this time. This is a new take on our usual shrimp, but a Paleo version, and perhaps a little foodie? Either way, the kids enjoyed it, and hopefully you will too.

If you’re new to cooking with shrimp, I want to share this good news with you: it’s easy to work with. Be sure to purchase shrimp that’s prepared (peeled and deveined) to make your experience easier.
