Shrimp Salad

Shrimp Salad with Fresh Dill Dressing

This is a low-calorie version of most shrimp salad recipes that call for a lot of mayonnaise. If you can handle dairy, Greek yogurt is a great substitute for high calorie/high fat mayo. I like using the Fage Greek yogurt because it is a very thick Greek yogurt and replaces recipes calling for sour cream or mayonnaise very well.

I’ll share a few images with you of our latest trip to Seattle to visit our kids and attend a few medical classes for my mom who may be receiving a double lung transplant in the near future. I have an earlier post, which you can check out here, if you are interested in her auto immune story: Gluten intolerance linked to autoimmune?

We enjoyed a few days at Lake Tapps in western Washington, where my daughter’s in-laws have a beautiful piece of property. Ducklings were still swimming with their mama’s, looking for little bits of bread we tossed at them. You can still see the few downy feathers remaining on the little duck to the right.

Paddling along in the cool green water, this duckling still has not left his mama’s side.

Peaceful sunset over Lake Tapps

The evenings were so peaceful as the sun set over Lake Tapps.

During the day all kinds of craziness occurs as the water is full of boaters, skiers, and paddle boarders. Lake Tapps is quite large but their property rests on a tiny little finger inlet. After we enjoyed a few days of friends and family we drove to Seattle. The weather was gorgeous, almost too hot, if you can imagine that! Seattle is known for its rain, but when it is sunny, it is one of the most beautiful cities in the US. Here are a few pictures taken down on the pier where they have put up a giant ferris wheel right on the water’s edge.

This is the view of the ferris wheel on the Seattle Pier overlooking the city skyline.

Here is an upward view of this giant ferris wheel. Pretty impressive!

I’m afraid of heights and my husband is claustrophobic, so consequently, we did not get on. But it looks like quite a ride! This ferris wheel is the largest wheel on the West coast. You can read about the wheel and all its great facts here: The Seattle Great Wheel.

 

Here is the view out onto the water from the ferris wheel. I just happen to take it on solid ground rather than 175 feet in the air!

We enjoyed delicious fresh seafood while we were in Seattle. I asked one restaurant if they used fake crab (it contains wheat starch), and the waiter laughed at me. “This is Seattle! We don’t use fake crab!” Of course they don’t, but when you have a food allergy, you always ask, even in Seattle.

 

Shrimp Salad with Fresh Dill

Greek Yogurt and Fresh Dill Dressing

Fresh dill atop Greek yogurt is a start to a great shrimp salad.

Diced celery

Chop the celery to about 1/4 inch cubes and toss in the dressing.

Chopped onion

Dice the onion quite small and add to the dressing.

I used red onion in this recipe, but when I make it again, I will use a sweet onion. This onion was almost overpowering, so for the recipe, I recommend a sweet onion like Vidalia or Walla Walla Sweets.

Thawing frozen shrimp

Place the frozen shrimp in cold lemon-salt water. Soak the shrimp for twenty minutes or until thawed.

Dill Dressing over Shrimp

Dump the fresh dill/yogurt dressing over the shrimp and toss until well coated.

Butter Lettuce Leaves

I love the lightness of butter lettuce for a shrimp salad.

Shrimp Salad

Place the coated shrimp on top of the butter lettuce and enjoy a delicious low-calorie shrimp salad topped with fresh dill. This would be great with avocado, too.

 

Shrimp Salad with Fresh Dill Dressing

 

1 pound frozen fully cooked shrimp

1/2 tsp salt

1 fresh lemon cut in half

1 head of butter lettuce

1 cup Fage Greek 2% plain yogurt

1 tsp Dijon Mustard

1 Tbsp White wine

1/2 tsp cracked black pepper

1/2 tsp salt

3 Tbsp fresh dill chopped

1/3 cup sweet onion diced

1 cup celery diced

1 tsp honey

1 chopped avocado (optional)

 

Cover frozen shrimp with cold water in a large bowl. Add the juice of half a lemon and 1/2 a tsp of salt to the water. Set aside for twenty minutes to allow the shrimp to fully thaw.

In a small bowl, add Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, white wine, black pepper, dill, onion, celery, and honey. Stir to fully combine.

Drain the shrimp and add dressing to coat the shrimp well. Rinse the butter lettuce, tear leaves and place a mound of lettuce in individual bowls. Squeeze the remaining lemon over the lettuce leaves in each bowl. Place several coated shrimp on top of the lettuce and add chopped avocado if desired.

    Hey Laurie!
    I just read your post about your mom and autoimmune disease. I have 4 and I notice that gluten cross-contamination will make the symptoms much worse.
    I hope everything goes well for your mom and her transplant. :)

      Thank you, Jodi. The process has taken forever to find out if they will allow her on the list for a transplant. She has been going through numerous tests since last year. We hope to have the final reply from the transplant board this next week. Thanks for the heads up on the cross-contamination.

that way you actually get good guides In the 1930s, Elsa Schiaparelli with Madeleine Vionnet rose to prominence. Both were known for their innovative designs while not shattering the fundamentals of fashion. Schiaparelli became popular with her black knitted white bow. In addition to their well stocked inventory, you'll find dozens of dresses under "clearance sale" where you could pick up a designer beaded dress in the mid $100s. Choose from animal print, solids, paisley, sequined, chiffon and more for a custom look that's uniquely you. Featured designers include Betsy Johnson, Shelli Segal, Shoshanna, Tracey Reese, Nicole Miller, Anna Sui and Faviana. Joining me on the call is our Chairman and CEO, Mr. Qiming Xu. Please note that we will be making a number of forward looking statements today and all such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations and assumptions mentioned today, due to a variety of factors that affect the company, including risk specified in the most recently filed Form 20 F.. Of course the fun does not end when you turn off the computer. You can play the fashion games any time, and this is the area that adults especially truly enjoy. The adult can head to the department store and gather up any number of terrific outfits to try on. See if the stones are set by prongs. The prong placements also set Juliana apart, by giving it a claw like appearance, which is far from the traditional setting. Since Juliana jewelry was handmade or handset, you can expect that every piece is set by a prong. While mainstream men kept it close cropped with side parts and slicked back dos, many guys sported long hair in an effort to blur gender lines and shake traditional standards of masculinity. In the late 1960s, some African American men embraced the trend popularized by the civil rights based is beautiful movement, adopting natural hairstyles and a wardrobe influenced by an African aesthetic, including brimless kofia hats. Horn rimmed glasses, aviators and large frames made a bold mark on eyewear during this fashionable decade.. The first five episodes of Aquarian Age are interesting in how they play out. With a lot of series, be it short like this or a full season show, would do what these five episodes do in the space of one or two episodes normally. For a half season show to do the first five episodes like this is surprising but it seems to really work in its favor.wholesale fashion shoes
