Tropical Shrimp Salad Recipe
Recipe type: Salad
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
This tropical shrimp salad was inspired from my trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. It contains shrimp, papaya, and macademia nuts.
  • 1 pound of boiled, cooled wild shrimp
  • 4 cups of organic green lettuce
  • 1 organic papaya
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 carrot
  • ¼ cucumber
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes
  • Several sprigs of cilantro
  • ¼ cup macademia nuts, halved
  1. Wash and chop the lettuce and all of the other vegetables and put them in a bowl.
  2. Slice the papaya, cut into bite size pieces, and get rid of the seeds. I recommend only purchasing organic papaya or papaya that does not come from Hawaii. Most of the papaya grown in Hawaii is genetically modified but if you can find organic Hawaiian papaya or papaya grown elsewhere, it will be fine. If you cannot find this, you can use mango instead.
  3. Wash the cilantro and remove the leaves and place them in the bowl.
  4. Add the shrimp.
  5. Toast the macademia nuts and add them to the salad.
  6. Pour the dressing over the salad.
