  • 2 lb Shrimp
  • 1/2 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 2 large Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 2 tbsp Parsley
  • 2 tbsp Canola Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Horseradish Sauce
  • 2/3 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/3 tsp Tabasco Sauce


  1. In a 2-quart pan, bring water to a boil. Add shrimp and cook 3 minutes or until curled and pink. Plunge into a bowl of water and ice. Once chilled, drain, de-shell and set aside.
  2. Coarsely chop the vegetables and place into a food processor.  Pulse the vegetables together with the parsley, oil, horseradish, vinegar, garlic, mustard, paprika, salt, pepper and Tabasco sauce until fairly smooth to form a dressing. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Toss shrimp in dressing. Chill one hour.
  4. To serve, line 6 plates with shredded lettuce and put an equal number of shrimp on each.

Cooking Tip
