Shrimp Salad in Uni Dressing
Shrimp Salad in Uni Dressing Recipe
As a convenient short-cut, this recipe uses cooked shrimps (either fresh from the supermarket deli or frozen cooked ones). If you wish to cook the shrimps from scratch instead, bring a pot of water to boil. Add prawns and boil until they are just cooked (less than 3 minutes). Peel and devein the prawns. This will add about 15 mins to this recipe.
The uni salad dressing is made with a special uni (sea urchin) sauce. If you don’t have the uni sauce, see cooking note below for links to 2-minute salad dressings recipes.
- 8 cooked shrimps see cooking note
- 1 serving (50g) mix salad greens
- half avocado pitted & sliced to wedges
- 5 cherry tomatoes halved
- 1 tbsp ikura (salmon roe)
- chopped spring onions
- fresh basil leaves torn coarsely
- lemon wedge
Uni Salad Dressing
- 25ml olive oil
- 15 ml rice vinegar

If you are not making the uni salad dressing, here are some recipe links to 2-minute salad dressings that will go well with this shrimp salad: Lime-olive oil dressing, soy-sesame dressing, soy-balsamic dressing and soy-orange dressing.
The salad looks phenomenal with the combo of flavours! I have to look for some uni sauce to try too.
So convenient to have good quality fresh cooked/boiled prawns! I wish for such healthy delicious salad right now.
