Shrimp salad

Posted by in Healthy Living, Low Carb, Salad, Seafood

Delhi is a landlocked area, so for us, the denizens of this area sea food acquires dizzy heights of gourmet food right to the level of caviar.  Have you ever had caviar?  I find it horrible but then people tell me its acquired taste and it’s for the nobility, not for middle class peasants like me.

Anyway I digress.

Delhi can also be hot and humid during the monsoons.  Sweat and general lassitude make the kitchen feel like the inside of my oven set on slow grill.  Most of the time we’ve been surviving on plain old dal-chawal or smoothies and salads.  Luckily we get a whole lot of frozen shrimp in the market.  Shrimp salad is easy to make and very tasty.  This is one easy recipe I am fond of.
