Prep: 40 mins | Cook: 10 mins | Total time: 50  mins| Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • Shrimp
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp dried bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 tsp dried chili flakes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 20 (about 14 ounces) raw jumbo shrimp, peeled, with the tails left on if you like

Dressing

  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp Olive~Me & Co Mango Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salsa

  • 9 ounces prepared mango chunks or 2 medium mangoes, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 2 red chilies, seeds removed if you want less heat, finely chopped
  • juice of 2 limes
  • leaves from a large handful of cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

To Serve

  • 7 oz chopped lettuce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and set aside.
  3. Lightly beat the egg whites in a wide, shallow bowl to break them up.
  4. Toss the bread crumbs, coconut, chili flakes and a little salt and pepper together in another similar-sized bowl.
  5. Working in batches, toss a few of the shrimp into the egg whites, making sure they are well coated.
  6. Use a slotted spoon to lift them out, allowing the excess egg white to fall back into the bowl.
  7. Then put the prawns into the coconut crumbs, toss them about and using another slotted spoon (or you can just pick them up with your hands), transfer them onto the baking sheet in a single layer.
  8. Repeat until all are coated and then bake in the oven for 8–10 minutes.
  9. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Simply whisk the honey and vinegar together in a small bowl, season to taste and set aside.
  10. To make the salsa, toss the mango, chili, lime juice, cilantro and a little salt and pepper together and set aside also.
  11. Once cooked, the shrimp should have turned from bluish green to pink, be cooked through and the coconut crumbs crisp and lightly golden. Remove them from the oven and you are ready to serve.
  12. Divide the lettuce among four serving bowls.
  13. Spoon the salsa over, arrange five shrimp on top of each, finish with a drizzle of the dressing and serve.

Olive~Me & Co.’s White Bean, Shrimp and Watercress Salad

Olive~Me & Co.’s White Bean, Shrimp and Watercress Salad

Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup Olive~Me & Co.’s Avocado Oil*
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 6 cups trimmed watercress (about 3 bunches)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • Lemon wedges (optional)

Preparation

  1. Prepare grill.
  2. Thread shrimp onto 12-inch skewers; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side or until done. Cool completely; remove shrimp from skewers. Place shrimp and beans in a large bowl; toss gently to combine.
  3. Combine avocado oil and lemon juice, stirring with a whisk; stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Drizzle dressing over shrimp mixture; toss gently to combine.
  4. Arrange watercress on a large platter, and top with shrimp mixture. Sprinkle evenly with chives. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.

*Note: Rich, buttery avocado oil flavours this salad, but using extra virgin olive oil in its place would be delicious, too. Combine and chill the shrimp and white bean mixture a day before consuming. Be sure to stir the mixture before spooning it over the watercress. You can purchase precooked, peeled shrimp to save time.
