This Paleo shrimp salad recipe makes a fantastic quick dinner when you are pressed for time. I’ve been following the Paleo diet for a few weeks now and one of the hardest things I’m having to adjust to is the absence of pasta. Normally, pasta is my ingredient of choice when I am rushed for time. Of course, there is no pasta allowed on the Paleo diet so I had to start thinking outside of the box. Since I cannot have a traditional shrimp pasta salad on the Paleo diet, I decided to see if I could come up with a Paleo shrimp salad recipe instead.
Paleo Shrimp Salad Recipe
Basically, instead of the pasta as the “filler” for your shrimp salad, you will use hard boiled eggs instead. The end result is delicious and the addition of apple and celery gives the paleo shrimp salad recipe some added crunch.
- 1 hard boiled egg, peeled and chopped not too small
- 1 can of cooked tiny shrimp (wild caught is best) 4 oz
- 1 apple, cored and chopped
- 1 stalk of celery, chopped
- ⅛ cup mustard (adjust for taste)
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- ½ tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
- ½ tbsp local honey (optional if you don't want to add it)
- ½ tsp dried parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
- Mix everything in a large bowl.
- Refrigerate for at least an hour before eating.
- Serve or mixed greens if you are paleo.
- If not, you can serve in a pita or in a sandwich wrap.
I love that this lets me enjoy the taste of shrimp in a salad that isn’t loaded with pasta or rice. It’s the perfect Paleo meal for a busy night or take it with you for lunch instead.
