Bread and shrimp skewers with romaine salad and Caesar dressing
3/4 pound large peeled and deveined frozen shrimp (about 24), thawed
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest, plus 2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
coarse salt and ground pepper
5 ounces crusty bread, cut into 1-inch pieces (3 cups)
1 hard-cooked egg yolk, mashed - I left this out as I didn't have time. You see I watched Bounty Hunter and My Girlfriends Boyfriend. Both of which were bad movies but sometimes, that's what makes your day.
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for serving
2 large hearts romaine lettuce leaves, separated
Preheat oven to 450. In a medium bowl, combine shrimp, half the garlic, lemon zest, and 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Thread shrimp and bread onto eight 8-inch wooden or metal skewers. Transfer skewers to a rimmed baking sheet and bake until shrimp is opaque throughout and croutons are golden, 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine remaining garlic, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons oil, egg yolk, and mustard; season with salt and pepper. Whisk until well combined; stir in Parmesan. Add romaine and toss to coat. Sprinkle salad with more Parmesan and serve alongside skewers.
Wherever you are in the world, I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
