Shrimp Salad (to impress all your friends)

My new year's resolution is to blog more here - and I have a lot of pics for the 2014 year in review coming up. In the meantime:

Shrimp Salad

Ingredients:

  • One bag of frozen pre-cooked shrimp (find the kind with shells and tails removed; it’s so much easier)
  • Half a medium-sized onion (white or red)
  • 3 celery stalks (washed etc)
  • Mayonnaise
  • Dill (dried or fresh)
  • Granulated garlic
  • Red chili flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon

Steps

  1. To thaw the shrimp in a food-safe and efficient manner, empty the frozen shrimps into a bowl in the sink and run cold tap water over the shrimps until thawed. Drain the shrimp well.
  2. Finely dice the onion and celery.
  3. Chop the shrimp as fine as you want it - it’s nice to have a bit of variety in the shrimp.
  4. Combine in a bowl with two tablespoons of mayonnaise. (You may want to add more later but start small)
  5. Add 1 teaspoon dill, 1/2 teaspoon garlic (or less depending on your crowd), 1 teaspoon chili flakes, and salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Stir to combine, then put in the fridge for a few hours.
  7. Just before serving, squeeze over the salad the juice of 1/4 lemon (or more) and add more salt to taste.
  8. Serve on crackers.
