Boudin Salmon Salad with Shrimp and Butter sauce.
If you’re looking for a unique dish to serve at your next party, this is it! The spinach adds a beautiful touch of color to the plate and makes a healthy alternative to heavy, fatty foods that are typically served during holiday celebrations.
- Boudin salmon, sliced into 1-inch pieces
- Crab spinach topped with shrimp and butter wine sauce
- Avocado salsa (optional)
You can use any of these ingredients in any order. For example, you could layer the crab spinach on top of the avocado salsa. You don’t have to make all three components at once; you could just eat them separately as well!
1 teaspoon olive oil
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook for 3 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low; add butter and wine, stirring occasionally until the shrimp are pink and firm (about 8 minutes).
- Spoon shrimp mixture into four bowls; sprinkle each serving with parsley before serving.
1/4 cup chopped onion
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly for 30 seconds more; add water and crab boil seasoning mix (or Old Bay seasoning). Cook over medium-high heat until boiling; reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes more.
3 cloves garlic, minced
Garlic is a member of the onion family, and it’s one of my favorite ingredients to cook with. It has a strong, pungent flavor that can be added to almost any meal—steak, chicken, soup, you name it! Garlic is rich in vitamins and minerals like vitamin B6 and selenium. I would definitely recommend adding a clove or two to your next recipe.
2 tablespoons butter
The butter you’ll use for this recipe is a dairy product made by churning fresh or fermented cream or milk. It’s used as a spread, as a condiment, and as an ingredient in cooked dishes. Butter is also used in baking, such as in pastries, cookies, and cakes.
8 ounces large shrimp, peeled and deveined
For best results, use large shrimp that have been peeled and deveined. If you’re not sure how to do this, look for a step-by-step tutorial online or check out this video.
1/2 teaspoon salt
Salt is an ingredient used to add flavor to food. It is also a mineral and helps preserve food. Salt is one of the most important ingredients in cooking because it helps with digestion and weight loss.
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
Cayenne pepper is a spice that comes from a plant, so it’s a great addition to all kinds of dishes. The heat and flavor of cayenne are perfect for many types of seafood, including salmon, crab, and shrimp. It also adds an exciting kick to spinach!
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Black pepper is an aromatic spice that is commonly used to add flavor to food. It’s made from the dried fruit (or berries) of the pepper plant, which can be found in tropical areas around the world. Black pepper is often used in dishes that are cooked, as it has a strong flavor and doesn’t last long when added directly to uncooked food.
