  • 1 cup mayonnaise regular or reduced fat
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon drained capers coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 scallion white and light green part only, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 handful celery leaves finely chopped

Shrimp and Salad

  • Salt
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp 16-20 count, tail removed if desired
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 head Bibb or butter lettuce
  • Celery leaves
  • 1 large avocado halved, pitted peeled and cut into wedges
  • Lemon wedges
  • Capers



  • Combine the ingredients for the remoulade in a small bowl. Refrigerate until needed.

Shrimp and Salad:

  • Bring a pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the shrimp and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until the shrimp is cooked through and opaque. (It may not even take that long--shrimp cooks quickly!)
  • Drain the shrimp and rinse under cold running tap water. Drain again and season with some black pepper.
  • Combine the shrimp with the remoulade.
  • Line footed or other cocktail glasses with 2-3 leaves of lettuce.
  • Divide the shrimp among the glasses evenly.
  • Add a sprig of celery leaves, a lemon wedge and an avocado wedge or two.
  • Sprinkle with a few capers and serve immediately.


MAKE AHEAD:  The remoulade can be made 1 day ahead of time and refrigerated.  You can make the shrimp ahead of time, too but store them separately as the acid in the remoulade may toughen the shrimp.
