Garlic Shrimp and White Bean Salad

Caramelized lemons make an amazingly simple salad dressing - perfect over sauteed garlic shrimp. Serves 4
1 bag Fresh Express Veggie Spring Mix
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 lemons cut in half
16-20 medium size shrimp, peeled & deveined
3 cloves garlic chopped
1 dash crushed red chili flakes
1 can cannellini beans, rinsed & drained
1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
Coarse salt & cracked black pepper
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half

In a medium sauté pan, heat olive oil and place lemons, cut side down, in the pan. Let sizzle for 2 minutes then add shrimp, garlic, chili flakes and sauté for 4-6 minutes until shrimp are cooked and lemon gets a little caramelized/browned. Add the drained beans, parsley, and toss to coat. Let mixture cool.  Add a pinch of salt & pepper to taste.

 

Serve the bean-parsley mixture over the Fresh Express Veggie Spring Mix.  Place several shrimp on top of each salad.  You may squeeze the lemon on each salad before serving -- or place a half lemon on each plate and let your guests squeeze onto their salad.
