Making salad with orange and shrimp:

Step 1: prepare the shrimp.


To prepare this salad, you can use both frozen and fresh raw shrimp. If you purchased the first option without unpacking, let the seafood melt in a bowl with cold running water, if the second, then immediately throw them in a colander and thoroughly rinse off the sand, as well as any other contaminants. At the same time, put on a medium fire a small pot of purified water. Add salt to it to taste and bring to a boil.

Step 2: cook the shrimp.


As soon as the liquid in the saucepan starts bubbling, we send raw shrimp into it and cook exactly 2 minutes after boiling again.

Then we throw them into the washed colander and leave it in the sink, so that excess liquid from the seafood glass and they dry out a little.

Step 3: prepare the oranges.


Then, using a sharp kitchen knife, peel the oranges, peeling them so that there are no white fibers that contain bitter oils. After that, we sort the citruses into slices and remove the membrane from them (a white thin film). Put the pieces of fruit in a small bowl, and squeeze the remaining juice out of the waste into a clean deep dish.

Step 4: prepare the rest of the ingredients.


Then we get rid of the husks of the husk and wash it with lettuce leaves under a stream of cold water. Shake greens over the sink, blot with paper kitchen towels and distribute in an even beautiful layer on a large flat dish or plate.

We put the cloves aside for a while, put on the countertop the rest of the products that will be needed to prepare the dish, and proceed to the next step.

Step 5: preparing a gas station.


Now in a bowl with a small amount of orange juice squeeze the juice from half a lemon. We add honey and soy sauce there.

Then squeeze the cloves of garlic through a press and mix these ingredients with a tablespoon to a homogeneous consistency. Refueling is ready!

Step 6: prepare the boiled shrimp.


Then we clear the seafood from the heads and shells, leaving a tail fin if desired.

We throw them into a bowl with sesame seeds and roll seafood in it so that most of the grains stick to the shrimp bodies.

Step 7: bring the salad to full readiness.


So we have come to the last stage of cooking! We lay the shrimps on the arugula, crush them with the remnants of sesame seeds, pour over the finished dressing and taste them ahead!

Step 8: serve the salad with orange and shrimp.


Salad with orange and shrimp served immediately after cooking. It is served on a large flat dish or in portions on plates in the form of an appetizing-burning appetizer before the main first or second hot dishes. This food is completely self-sufficient and does not need any additions, unless by the way there will be a bottle of dry or semi-dry white wine. Enjoy it!
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- very often, a set of ingredients is supplemented with slices of peeled avocado and crushed nuts, for example, walnuts or pecans;

- shrimp can be cooked with spices such as laurel leaves, lemongrass or different types of peppercorns, this will give the seafood an even more intense and very pleasant aroma;

- if you have only dense, viscous honey, then it is worth melting it to a liquid consistency in a water bath or in a microwave, then cool to room temperature and then use;

- decided to cook king or tiger prawns? Then cook them a little longer, about 2.5-3 minutes;

- Very often, arugula is replaced with any other salad leaves or even dispense with this ingredient.
