If you live in South Florida, I cannot tell you how many times you see a grilled shrimp caesar salad on the menu at eating places on the local waterfront. It always looks good and is a very popular recipe. The important thing, it's easy to do at home - and make it the way you want it!

How to make a creamy Caesar sauce:

Like most of my recipes, I love my mix of hand-making, and use it with any meal I want to prepare (start preparing your spices and mixes in advance and save them in the cupboard for future use). I don't use raw eggs in this recipe the way you do with "classic". This will replace the egg Caesar salad sauce with mayonnaise to start the emulsion. It is soft and bright with lemon flavor and yes, it includes sardines for a salty and soft touch. The key to this dressing is to follow the directions. Measure ingredients and slowly add oil to the blender. If you try to avoid it, you will not get the same thick and generous result.

Making Old Bay Seasoned Croutons:

Use strong, old fermented bread and cut it into large pieces.
Transfer it to the food processor two to three times, until it is torn to rough parts. Don't handle too much or make crumbs. (One of my favorite breads is Trader Joe sourdough.)
Transfer the bread to a baking sheet and spray with olive oil.
Mix the bread and olive oil together until lightly covered.
Add seasoning and salt. Toss again with your hands.
Spread bread on an equal layer and bake.
Stir toast several times during baking to ensure even cooking.
Cook until the bread crumbles golden and crunchy.
Take it out of the oven and set it aside.

Old Bay Shrimp Recipe:

Old Bay spices are always my first choice. Of course, when I think about seafood in general, my mind immediately spreads into Old Bay spices. It is not very hot and always brings distinct taste to the home.

For spicy grilled shrimp - use the best quality shrimp you can get. I am fortunate to live now in a coastal city with an abundance of fresh seafood. For this grilled shrimp Caesar salad, I bought a pound of fresh bay shrimp.

Peel and devein shrimp:

Remove the swimmers and the shell, leaving the last part of the shell and tail intact.
Gently ran with a sharp knife along the top of the shrimp, from tail to - well - I mean the head was not there, but until the shrimp ran out.
Gently pull the shallow cut and remove the "vein". (This is the gut in shrimp and you can eat it if you like, but I like removing it for aesthetic reasons).
Continue this way until all shrimps are peeled and emptied.

Spicy grilled shrimp seasoning:

The shrimp seasoning is as easy as tossing it with some olive oil, Old Bay spices, salt and a little chili to heat. Caen is optional, so skip it if you don't want to "feel burns" or add more if you are of this type. Personally, I love a kick on my shrimp czar.
Place shrimp on skewers by first passing over the top of the shrimp and then puncturing just above the back. Stirring in two separate places will prevent the shrimp from turning over a skewer, and it will definitely make it easier for the barbecue grill manager.
Roast Old Bay shrimp until it becomes pink and opaque, but not much to dry. You want to stay wet.

Grilled Shrimp Caesar Salad:

Fill a salad bowl with cleaned and dried romaine lettuce.
Add about half of the Caesar dressing and toss to the coat. If the salad feels too dry, add more sauce and throw it back on the cover (you can always add more clothes, but it's hard to get rid of them ...)
Add Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and saute again on the cover.
Divide salads between shallow dishes or dishes.
Top each liberal with toasted old bun and spicy grilled shrimp. (Note: You can leave shrimp on skewers to be removed from reluctant individuals or take them off and put them to power.

Grilled Shrimp with Caesar Salad and Creamy Dressing Recipe

Prep Cook Ready in Serves
20 m 10 m 30 m 4


For seasoning contents:

  • 1/1 cup daily bread - from French loaf, Italian loaf or whipped crust
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning
  • Quarter teaspoon of salt

For shrimp:

  • 1 lb average shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of old bay spices
  • 1/8 teaspoon optional cayenne pepper
  • Quarter teaspoon of salt

For Caesar salad:

  • 1 coarse romaine lettuce, dried and torn into small pieces
  • 1 / 3-1 / 2 Cup Caesar sauce link on this site or use your favorite Caesar sauce
  • Half a cup of fresh grated Parmesan cheese


Making of Breadcrumbs:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Trim the crusts from the bread and tear the bread into small pieces. Transfer to a mini prep food processor and pulse several times until the bread is torn, but not cut into the bread crumbs. You want small chunks of crushed bread - smaller than regular croutons.
  3. Transfer the bread to a baking sheet and spray with olive oil. Add Old Bay seasoning and salt and stir the mixture. Bake in one layer until crumbs are brown and fresh, about 8-10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

For shrimp:

  1. Heat the grill to a high medium temperature, around 450 degrees -500 degrees.
  2. Peel and devein the shrimp and place in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle Old Bay seasoning, cayenne pepper (if used) and salt on shrimps and stir until well wrapped.
  3. Place shrimp on skewers so that the meat penetrates into the top of the shrimp and closer to the tail. This will prevent them from turning over the skewer and grill.
  4. Shrimp is grilled for two minutes on one side, then stirred and grilled for another minute or two on the other side - cook until shrimp becomes pink and cook through, but still much. Transfer skewers to a paper frying pan.

Making Salad:

  1. Put the Roman lettuce in a large salad bowl. Add the Caesar dressing and throw it to combine. If the lettuce feels too dry, add a little dressing a little at a time until it is covered well but does not hit it.
  2. Add the grated Parmesan cheese to the salad and transfer it to a layer. Divide the salad between 4 dishes and sprinkle the bread crumbs. Take the shrimp out of the skewers and divide it into each meal. Serve with extra grated Parmesan cheese if desired.


* You can add small pieces of boiled egg to the salad or not (I didn't)
