Post Italian Shrimp Salad

Italian Shrimp Salad


2 tablespoons olive oil
cup tiny-diced red onion
teaspoon minced garlic
2 large red peppers, roasted (see note), peeled, cut into 1/3-inch dice
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
cup finely grated pecorino cheese
3 tablespoons drained small capers
1 pound cooked frozen peeled shrimp (21-25 count), thawed, tail-shell removed, shrimp split lengthwise
Red pepper flakes
Boston lettuce leaves, for serving


Heat oil in 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add onion and garlic. Cook until onion is softened, stirring often, about 3 minutes.

Add roasted peppers. Cook until heated through, about 30 seconds. Transfer to bowl. Add honey, vinegar, cheese, capers and shrimp. Toss until well mixed. Adjust seasoning. Can be made a day ahead and refrigerated.

To serve, add salt and red pepper flakes and toss well; adjust seasoning. Serve chilled, attractively arranged on lettuce leaves. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Note: To roast red peppers, cut pepper off in flat slabs and discard core. Place single layer, skin side up, on baking sheet lined with foil. Broil about 5 inches from heat source. Cook until skin is entirely black, then wrap in foil lining until cool. Use your hands to remove and discard skin.
