  • 1/2 lemon, plus 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • Salt
  • 1 pound shelled and deveined medium shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed or vegetable oil
  • Pinch of sugar

  • 2 hearts of romaine, cut into 1-inch-wide ribbons
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Hass avocado, diced
  • 2 tablespoons snipped chives

How to make this recipe

  1. Fill a medium saucepan with water. Squeeze the lemon half into the water, then add it to the water with the peppercorns and a generous pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Add the shrimp and simmer until curled and just pink, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shrimp to a paper towel-lined plate. Freeze the shrimp until just chilled, about 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the lemon juice with the olive oil, grapeseed oil, sugar and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the romaine, tomatoes, avocado and shrimp and toss. Transfer to plates, garnish with the chives and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Chris Blanchard pairs a slightly riper, more full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc with this dish.
