The first thing to remember is to NOT overcook the shrimp. See previous post about poaching.
Easy Shrimp Salad
1.5# large Gulf shrimp poached, peeled and deveined
3 ribs celery - fine dice
4 or 5 Green Onions - fine dice, white with two inches of the green (as long as its tender)
1/2c - 3/4c Good quality mayonnaise
1/2 Tsp. Black Pepper
1/2 Tsp. Salt (to taste)
Cut the shrimp in half lengthwise and then into thirds. Combine all ingredients and adjust seasonings to taste. I like to let this sit overnight to let the flavors really come together. Served on a sandwich, or sitting on top of a plate of shredded romaine, this stuff is totally fresh and addictive.
The addition of a squeeze of fresh lemon just before serving is icing on the cake. Enjoy.
