Shrimp salad: delicious recipe step by step
The shrimp salad recipe is perfect for hot days.
Since the beginning of spring, a few episodes of heat have been going on, which makes me a little scared what It's going to bring summer. In those moments, I feel like a good portion of prawns salad with a glass of white wine to refresh me.
In fact, when I start thinking about the temperatures that summer can reach in the south of Spain, I understand perfectly that in the area of Cádiz and Huelva they had the great idea of inventing such a fresh dish, as is the prawn salad.
I am a fan of this type of salad, since Sometimes, when I go to prepare it, I have trouble deciding between her and her cousin, the Russian salad.
At least for today, the one that won was the prawn salad, so let's go with the recipe.
Easy Shrimp Salad Recipe
In a salad bowl, add the cubes of carrot, potato, prawns, and peas. If it is preserved peas, they must be drained first.
About the layout of the mayonnaise for this salad, there are two schools: one that does the preparation how we just explained it, and another that keeps half, and At the moment of decorating the salad, place it on top and spread it with a spoon. After that step is that the ornament is made with prawns and olives, or in some cases, with peas and carrot pieces.
The second way to add mayonnaise is particularly practical when the salad of prawns is available in Pyrex type molds and seeks to achieve an appearance more similar to a lasagna or cake.
Tips for an incredible shrimp salad
- Although in that case it would no longer be a shrimp salad, the prawns also work very well to prepare a version of this recipe.
- Optionally, you can add 100 grams of sweet corn to the recipe, to give it a sugary touch , that is going great.If by chance you do not know what surimi is, I leave here the link to Wikipedia. In this case, we refer to the surimi with crab flavor, which is the most typical in the western market.
To prepare the salad of prawns and surimi, you just have to make a change with respect to the original recipe: we are going to reduce 100 grams of the amount of prawns, and instead we are going to add 8 bars of surimi, also chopped into cubes. This will be mixed with the rest of the preparation.
Prawns salad with egg
To prepare this version of the salad, you have to add a couple of hard-boiled eggs to the recipe.
To integrate this ingredient into the recipe, there are two different styles. The first is to chop the eggs (no peel, of course) in cubes and mix them with the rest of the ingredients. The second is to shred the eggs and use them to decorate the salad, sprinkling them on top. They can even replace the decoration with prawns and olives.
