Shrimp Caesar Salad – MyRecipes

Having previously tried Martha Stewart’s Caesar Salad with Spicy Shrimp, I thought I would try another shrimp recipe and selected Shrimp Caesar Salad from MyRecipes.   The recipe is not advertised as a low-fat caesar salad, but it is only 295 calories a portion.

Depending on whether you make your own croutons, there’s really no cooking involved in this recipe. It’s simply a matter of making the dressing and mixing the ingredients together. 7/10

The food

The simplicity and speed of preparation in this recipe was reflected in the flavours. The salad was quite bland.  The shrimp should have been seasoned and the caesar dressing was too citrusy and a little watery. The Sriracha was barely noticeable and a little more might have added something to the recipe. 5/10

Overall

At first glance and looking at the ingredients, the recipe looked as if it could have some really interesting flavours, but in end it was very disappointing and so much more could have been done to enhance it.  I have no doubt that the recipe is low-calorie, but it is also low taste.  Not one I will be trying again. 6.75/10
