Seared Cajun Lemon Garlic Shrimp and Kale Salad

After an amazing holiday season and basically eating fancy cheese for every meal, my family and many of my friends are focused on eating more whole foods. Eating more vegetables doesn’t have to be boring or complicated. This salad will take you all of 10 minutes to prepare.

Serves: 4
Time: 10 Minutes

8 cups of Kale (you can used any kind of Kale, my fav is dino kale)
1/2 Tbs of salted butter or ghee
1 lb of defrosted, peeled, and deveined shrimp
1 Tbs of old bay seasoning
1/2 tsp of cajun seasoning
2 cloves of garlic, minced or pressed
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/2 cup crushed roasted peanuts

1/4 cup Annies Vegan Green Goddess dressing
1/4 cup Garlic Expressions dressing

1. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium high heat
2. Meanwhile add the shrimp and seasonings to bowl and stir to combine
3. Add the shrimp to the skillet and arrange so they are in one layer, let these sear about 3 minutes, then add the garlic, flip the shrimp and let cook for another 1-2 minutes then turn off the heat and all the lemon juice
4. Mix up the dressing by adding both dressings and whisking together
5. Plate your kale, sprinkle with peanuts, add the shrimp and top with dressing
