Next time you’re feeling hungry, try this quick and fresh recipe which is perfect for summer. Watermelon and goats cheese bring a unique taste of flavour to an otherwise conventional dish, but feel free to add any other fruits or vegetables if you like.
For the dressing:
2.5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon water
1 tablespoon chopped shallots
1/8th teaspoon salt
A pinch of fresh black pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
For the shrimp:
280g shelled and deveined large shrimp (or 24)
1 clove garlic (crushed)
Salt to taste
For the salad:
8 cups chopped romaine
4 cups diced watermelon
120g soft goat cheese
- Using a small bowl, combine the vinegar, water, shallots, and season with salt and pepper to your taste. Add a touch of olive oil, then keep stirring until combined.
- It is best to cook the shrimp on a grill, so start off by soaking the sewers in water for 30 minutes so they don’t tear.
- Then season the shrimp with salt and mix with garlic for extra flavour. Thread the shrimp onto the skewers and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
- For the salad, prepare a large bowl and toss the romaine with the dressing. Then chop up the watermelon, goat cheese and finally add the shrimp when they have cooled down. Drizzle a touch of olive oil before serving.
