I recently introduced you to The Magic Sauce — a simple sauce with endless possibilities that I really think everyone should know how to make. This recipe for a Glazed Shrimp Salad is just one example of the healthy, fast, simple recipes you can create using The Magic Sauce. Head over to this blog post for to learn more about the sauce and grab the recipe.
Here’s what you’ll need for the salad (one serving):
6-9 shrimp (cooked and thawed)
1.5 cups spinach
1 large carrots, sliced
1/4 cup red pepper, sliced
1/2 avaocado, cut into cubes
2-3 tbsp of The Magic Sauce
3-4 slices of cucumber (optional)
5-10 slices of radish (optional)
1 tbsp shopped cilantro (optional)
Black and white sesame seeds (optional)
Start by preparing your vegetables: chop up your carrot and red pepper, chop 1/4 cup of the spinach into small pieces or strips, halve and dice your avocado, slice your cucmber and radish. Then make a serving of The Magic Sauce. Heat up 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot add the sliced carrots and sautee 3-4 minutes, then add the red peppers and sautee together for an additional 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low. Once the pan has cooled a bit you can pour The magic Sauce over the vegetables and stir until combined. Add the cooked shrimp to the mixture and toss until everything is coated and warmed through. If you feel like you want more sauce just add drizzles of honey, liquid aminos, or sriracha until you strike the right balance.
Layer 1 1/4 cup spinach and the avocado chunks into a bowl and gently place the sauteed vegetable + shrimp mixture over the bed of greens. Layer it with fresh cucumbers and radish and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
This recipe is also great over a bed of brown rice if you want something more substantial, but I love the bed of greens of a light, veggie-packed lunch. The Magic Sauce is honestly so good you’ll forget that you’re eating a bowl of vegetables. Check out the full post for The Magic Sauce to discover a list of variations you can try out.
