Vicksburg Living Cookin’: The perfect seafood and salad combination

This recipe for “Shrimp and Crab Salad with Ginger Dressing” by Vicksburg chef William Furlong was featured in the May/June 2020 edition of Vicksburg Living.

 

Ingredients

• 1 pound large gulf shrimp, peeled, deveined, boiled and chilled

• 8 ounces lump crab meat

• 1 head Bibb lettuce, washed and chopped

• 2 cups of red and/or yellow  grape tomatoes

• 1 tablespoon ginger root, peeled

• 1 tablespoon garlic, minced

• 1 tablespoon shallots or red onions, diced

• Juice of two limes

• 1 cup soy sauce

• 2 tablespoons honey

• 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

• 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, washed, stemmed and chopped

• 2 cups mayonnaise, chilled

 

Instructions

In a food processor combine ginger, garlic and onion. Puree until smooth.

Add pepper flakes, lime juice, soy, cilantro and honey. Blend for one minute.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and mixture until smooth. Chill before serving.

On a plate, top lettuce with shrimp, crab and tomatoes.

Drizzle with dressing.

 

Chef’s note

The Bibb lettuce is a tender and delicious alternative to the spring mix. The ginger dressing can be stored in the fridge for two weeks. Make a double batch. It is a good sauce for seafood or dressing for salads.
