Here in PA we’re in the winter doldrums. I really could use a visit to a tropical isle. Let me see, I’ll do a quick check of my finances and the answer is obvious. I need to do it through a food journey.
My first choice is this shrimp salad sprinkled with crunchy crushed pineapple and moist sweetened coconut. Candied ginger adds some extra zing. Toss it with a pineapple coconut dressing using Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil and served on a bed of crisp, fresh greens.
In medium-sized bowl, add 1/2 cup cooked shrimp, sprinkle with 2 Tablespoons crushed pineapple, drained and reserve the liquid, 1 Tablespoon shredded sweetened coconut, 1 Tablespoon chopped candied ginger or fresh ginger.
liquefy oil by placing desired amount in a bowl and heat over a pan of hot water or in a double boiler.
To make the dressing, in a separate bowl, combine 2 Tablespoons of the reserved pineapple juice, 1 Tablespoon orange juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 Tablespoon liquid oil.
Whisk and pour dressing over shrimp mixture. Stir to coat and top greens with shrimp mixture. If dressing solidifies, place the bowl over hot water just long enough to liquefy.
