Seafood Caesar Salad

Author: Kyle

Ingredients

Salad Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup olive oil + 2 Tablespoons, divided
  • 2 cups cubed French bread
  • 1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (thawed if bought frozen)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ heads romaine lettuce
  • Lemon Caper Dressing - recipe follows
  • ½ pound crab meat
  • cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Dressing Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup capers, rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, We like Sir Kensington's here at Great Eight Friends!
  • 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Instructions

Salad Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Toss the bread cubes in the ¼ cup of olive oil and spread out on a baking sheet.
  • Bake until toasted, about 12 - 15 minutes, stirring after about 8 minutes.
  • Cool completely. The croutons can be made up to a day ahead of time and kept in a sealed plastic bag.
  • Toss the shrimp on a baking sheet with 2 Tablespoons of olive oil and salt.
  • Roast for 8 to 10 minutes, just until pink and firm and cooked through. Cool and refrigerate until serving time. (For a quicker version, use already cooked shrimp.)
  • To serve the salad, tear lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place into a large bowl and toss with most of the dressing.
  • Divide lettuce among plates and top each serving with equal parts of shrimp, crab, and croutons.
  • Drizzle with remaining dressing.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and season with freshly ground pepper.

Dressing Directions:

  • Place capers, garlic and mustard in a small food processor or blender. Process until smooth.
  • Add lemon juice, wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Blend for about 5 seconds.
  • Slowly add the olive oil and blend until thickened, about 1 minute.
