How to Make Simple Shrimp Salad

by Wendi Doll

I love this as a simple but fun lunch idea. Even my one year old is a fan!


  • 1 pound shrimp
  • Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup celery
  • Old bay seasoning
  • 1/4 lemon
  • Olive oil
  • Bread cheese and lettuce optional
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Pick off shells and clean shrimp thoroughly using cold water. You will want to remove all shell pieces including the tails for this.

    Step 2

    Sauté shrimp in olive oil with a sprinkle of old bay for flavor. It should take about 1-2 minutes per side and they should not be translucent when done.

    Step 3

    Set aside shrimp and cut them to smaller pieces.

    Step 4

    Chop celery until you have about a 1/4 cup. Add to shrimp.

    Step 5

    Cut about 1/4 off of the lemon, and squeeze the juice into the shrimp.

    Step 6

    Add mayonnaise and old bay, the amounts are really up to you but you want to balance the spice of the old bay with the acidity of the lemon.

    Step 7

    And done! You can eat it straight, put it on toasted bread, or whatever you like! I prefer toasted bread with Colby Jack cheese and lettuce.
