Diary of a Bridesmaid's Diet - Baby Cucumbers, Seared Shrimp Salad

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

When I think of cooking I think of clean up and I clench, to prevent myself from reaching in the drawer of takeout menus I make a simple dish with ingredients I keep in my pantry regularly.

The baby cucumbers from Costco are so sweet, juicy, crunchy and refreshing. I eat it with a little salt as a snack often. My healthy salad dressing is 2 part extra olive oil to 1 part balsamic vinegar and a dab of dijon mustard to thicken.

Seared Shrimp baby cucumber salad


The shrimps are seasoned with salt and pepper and seared for 2 minutes each side on high. I throw in the onions at the same time and don't touch them so it can caramelized.

Viola!



A fast, no clean up perfect dinner gearing up for my Bridesmaid's diet.

This looks so refreshing. I've got a whole bag of shrimp hanging out in my freezer, so I might have to give this recipe a shot!

Are baby cucumbers the same as persian cukes? Those are perfect for quick cooking, and the skin tastes better.
