Zesty Lime Shrimp Salad


  • 1/4 Celery
  • 4 Tbsp Red Onion
  • 2 Small Pickling Cucumbers
  • 8-10 Large Cooked Shrimp
  • Frank's Red Hot Sauce one teaspoon at a time until achieving desired HEAT level
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh Milled Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Small Lime


  • Thaw the Cooked Shrimp, Drain, take off tails, rinse, and chop into 3-4 pieces.
  • Clean Celery, by first peeling the ribbing off the celery and then cutting it into small pieces, do make sure they are easy enough to still be 'tined' by a fork.
  • Peel Cucumbers, and cut into small pieces.
  • Peel Red Onion and cut into smaller pieces(not too small as this will really become strong tasting the smaller you cut it)
  • Rinse the lime, roll on the counter to get the juice moving in it and then cut in half.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl add the shrimp, celery, red onion, cucumber, garlic salt, milled pepper, Olive Oil and Take 1/2 of the lime and squeeze it into the salad.
  • Add in Hot Sauce 1 Teaspoon at a time until achieving desired heat level.
  • Mix all together and serve.
