Shrimp Salad Wraps - Paleo Friendly !

This is a really wonderful warm salad for lunch or dinner. (You can serve it cold too.) 

Cheap tip--- Seafood is so easy and lean.  I love love love shellfish because of the low calorie content. But it can be pricey. Buy the shrimp when it's on sale and freeze it in 1/2 lb increments to use later. 

Shrimp/Seafood Salad 2 servings 

1 cup brown rice cooked
Olive oil
1/2 lb shrimp
1/2 cup crab meat or imitation crab meat or chopped cooked seafod of any variety (tuna is ok too)
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped raw onion
2 tbsp chopped cilantro or parsley 
Sea salt
Cajun spice or Old Bay seafood seasoning
Cayenne pepper (for a kick)

Cook the seasoned shrimp (add some salt and pepper before cooking) in a few drops of olive oil. Once shrimp is pink add in celery to soften.  Once celery is soft, toss in brown rice and other spices.  Lower heat and cover until rice is warm then add in the other cooked seafood of your choice.  Toss all ingredients together.  Turn off heat and add raw onions, additional spices to taste and parsley. 

For more binding and a creamier consistency, stir in 1 tbsp of spicy mustard and 2 tbsp of vegan mayo or regular organic mayo. 

Serve warm in lettuce leaves or cold the next day on whole grain crackers. 


Nom Nom :-)
