I’m not familiar with Martha Stewart recipes, but the Caesar Salad with Spicy Shrimp recipe can be found on the Martha Stewart website. There are a number of other great looking recipes on there, that I’m looking forward to trying. It’s always good to try an alternative to the classic chicken caesar salad recipe.
Corn & Wheat tortillas, Hellmann’s light mayonnaise, essential Waitrose olive oil, Waitrose romaine lettuce, Schwartz chilli powder, Waitrose anchovy fillets, Waitrose parmesan cheese, Waitrose jumbo king prawns, Fresh lime. 7/10
Level of difficulty
This recipe wasn’t at all difficult, care should be taken though to make sure that the tortillas don’t overcook. The dressing was very simple as the mayonnaise was pre-made. 8/10
Time taken to prepare
It took about 15 minutes in total. There isn’t a great deal of preparation and both the tortillas and prawns take only a few minutes to cook. 8/10
This was a spicy prawn recipe, so I wasn’t expecting the usual caesar flavouring. I think that I probably used a little bit too much chilli powder on the tortillas, which made them a bit overpowering, they were also a little overcooked. The prawns on the other hand could have had a little more seasoning. The flavours were pleasant but the chilli was the most distinctive flavour. The dressing was a little bland and the flavour was not particularly complex. 6/10
The salad was quick and simple but I think I was expecting a bit more. If I made it again, I would use less chilli and make my own caesar dressing. The recipe gained points for simplicity and quickness, but lost points for flavour. This really is a simple caesar salad recipe. 7.25/10
