Shrimp Salad

Shrimp salad is one of my favorite recipes.  Fresh local shrimp from the Geechee Dock in Charleston SC.  Shrimp season, summer, and salad = happiness.  Thank you beautiful shrimp and thank you local shrimpers.

Things In My Kitchen:

Shrimp peeler & deveiner– There’s a lot of fancy & expensive shrimp peelers & deveiners out there.  This inexpensive, plastic one works the best for me.  I am lost without it.
