Grilled Shrimp Cobb Salad
When one of my favorite salads meets my favorite grilled shrimp, you get this Grilled Shrimp Cobb Salad. One that you will crave all summer. This is your typical cobb salad with all the usual ingredients but the chicken is replaced with grilled shrimp. I like arrange the ingredients on a large platter to make for a pretty presentation and serve family style.
I recently bought a new grill and since then, I’ve been grilling (almost) every meal. The first recipe I made with the new grill was these delicious Grilled Thai Chicken Skewers, that is now in regular meal rotation.
When I cook shrimp, I rarely pan-cook them, I prefer to grill them. When you grill them, they charred bits develop a delicious sweetness and it makes cleanup so much easier. A favorite that I make often is Key Lime Grilled Shrimp. I make these both as an appetizer and sometimes add them to Lemon Pepper Spaghetti.
The shrimp in this Cobb salad is made very similarly to the key lime shrimp I mentioned above. They are simply seasoned with salt, pepper and regular lime zest (lemon can also be used) because seafood loves citrus.
Depending on my mood, sometimes I like my regular cobb salad with either ranch or blue cheese dressing. This Grilled Shrimp Cobb Salad, I serve with my go-to Dijon mustard vinaigrette. I think the lighter dressing works better with the shrimp.
This salad is not low in calories given the bacon an blue cheese, but if you’re following a low carb/keto eating plan or diet, this is the perfect salad for you.
I like to serve this Grilled Shrimp Cobb Salad family style. I spread butter lettuce leaves over a large serving platter, then arrange the rest of the ingredients on top of the lettuce.
