FRIED SHRIMP & SHITAKE SALAD #ManicMonday



I’m a huge salad-head, so when I’m in a rush, I always opt for something green on the menu. This was one of the best salads I’ve had in a while.. at a restaurant by the port in Marbella. To re-create this one, I’ll share the ingredients.. it’s too easy not to:

INGREDIENTS

-       fresh Arugula
-       baby tomatoes
-       pine nuts
-       fried shitake mushrooms
-       fried shrimps
-       thousand island dressing

If you have a deep fryer, this is even easier to make. I don’t own one for a reason, so when I do make fried food at home, it’s all pan fried. I like to avoid battering things up, too (I know, I’m no fun) but every now and then, you fat soul just requires something of this caliber. You can use tempura batter to easily fry all sorts of vegetables and meat, that’s the most ideal in my opinion, because it adds a crunch to your otherwise “boring” plate of greens.


You can skip the thousand island dressing, and save yourself the calories – a good balsamic vinegar will do the trick too.. but like I said, sometimes, you have to listen to your inner fat kid! (slap that stuff on!)
