Grilled Shrimp Salad Recipe

Happy What’s for Dinner? Wednesday!

This week’s meal, a brand new recipe for Grilled Shrimp Salad, was created with the help of world renowned chef, Bill Turley. If you haven’t heard of him yet, it’s likely because he serves a very small niche. His favorite and only cooking tool is the grill and he mostly cooks exclusively for other members of the Turley clan.  Since he lives stateside and not in Ireland, his recipes don’t always reach a big audience.

In fact, he mostly just cooks for my mom right now since my sister and I have moved away.  OK! I’ve given it away…this chef is really my dad. The fact that he is known all over the world has more to do with the fact that his daughters married into families based outside of the United States than his cooking skills. That being said, he has a lot of potential for world wide fame and when the time comes, you can say you met him here first!

My dad came down to Houston, TX this week to hang out with me since he had the week off and my hubby is out of the country. He’s been spoiling me with trips to Whole Foods and helping me with tasks around the house, like building this awesome tray table:


He’s also been killing it on the grill, which is great for me because I love eating grilled treats, but don’t trust myself that close to an open flame! If you’re an A-Lister, you already know the ingredients we picked up for tonight’s meal and if not, get on the list HERE so you don’t miss out next time 🙂

Here is what you need to serve Grilled Shrimp Salad to four:

1lb jumbo shrimp
1 package of kale
1/4 cup pine nuts (toast them if you can!)
1 cup chopped pineapple
1 cup raspberries
1/2 cup goat cheese
salt and pepper
1 lime
Optional: Salad dressing (we mixed apple cider vinegar and honey)

Here’s how to put it together:

Step One: Prep time. Clean and devein your shrimp and have a friend prep your salad (chopping and mixing the fruits and veggies, saving the lime for later).

Step Two: String your shrimp onto metal skewers.  Season them with salt and pepper and squeeze the juice of one lime on top.

Step Three: Grill your shrimp “until they are white,” says dad.  Make sure your shrimp look more like the letter “C” than the letter “O.”

Step Four: Unite your shrimp and salad, adding dressing if you’d like.

Super easy, healthy, and delicious!

Do you think my dad can qualify as a world renowned chef with this recipe? Would you try it? Do you think he should be upset with me for sharing it with you (he’s pretty humble and wasn’t too happy with me when I asked him about the cook time, however, I did take a photo of the dinner for my website…..)
