Citrus and Shrimp Salad
Frozen cooked shrimp are a great shortcut to shrimp salad, an entertaining classic. In this recipe, we tossed shrimp with grapefruit, clementines and fennel for a refreshing salad to serve as a starter course, or as lunch with bread and butter on the side. Cut the avocado just before serving to prevent browning.
Slice top and bottom off each grapefruit; peel with knife removing all white pith. Cut between membranes to release each section into small bowl; transfer sections to large bowl while saving juice in small bowl. Squeeze juice from membranes into the small bowl; pour 1/4 cup (50 mL) juice into a measuring cup (reserve remaining juice for another use). Whisk in oil, shallots, salt and pepper; pour over grapefruit sections.
Peel clementines and remove white pith. Slice each crosswise into four pieces; add to grapefruit. Gently toss in fennel and shrimp.
Line serving platter with lettuce leaves; top with shrimp salad. Arrange avocado slices over top along with fennel fronds, if desired.
