  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper to taste

  • 1 head radicchio, torn into bite-size pieces 3 cups mixed baby greens
  • 2 cups bite-size pieces frisée or curly endive

Preparation (Serves 4)

Using a pair of kitchen shears or a paring knife, cut through shell along the back of each shrimp. Devein and peel.

In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, oil, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Place shrimp and lemon mixture into a resealable plastic bag; seal bag and shake to coat shrimp. Refrigerate 1 hour.

Meanwhile, make vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, tarragon and shallot. Gradually whisk in oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Vinaigrette can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature and re-whisk before using.)

Heat grill or grill pan to high. Remove shrimp from marinade. Grill until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Combine shrimp, radicchio, baby greens and frisée in large bowl. Add vinaigrette and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
