  • 10 oz. medium-large shrimp
  • 1 bag salad mix (any kind)
  • 4 tsp. blackened seasoning
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced
  • 1 green apple, diced

Mango Dressing


  • Pat shrimp dry with paper towels and coat evenly with blackened seasoning.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter, bacon fat, coconut oil or other cooking oil over medium high heat.  
  • Add shrimp and cook for about 1-2 minutes per side, until cooked through but not overcooked.  They should no longer be opaque.
  • Combine remaining salad ingredients and serve with mango dressing (below).

Mango Dressing

  • Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Store the dressing in a seal-able jar in the fridge for up to one week. 


Cook's Tips:

  1. Use the fan while cooking the shrimp  - the blackened seasoning has a tendency to smoke.
  2. Don't overcook the shrimp or it will be chewy. 
  3. Substitute other fruit for mango is you don't like mango. Most fruits will work.
