Grilled Corn With Shrimp Salad

Ingredients


1 lb (454 g) Small Shrimps, shelled and tail intact
4 Ears of Corn, husked and silk removed
1 Packet (400 g) Grape Tomatoes, halved
1/2 Red Onion, diced
1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
2 Red Chilies

Dressing
2 Limes, juiced
1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3/4 tsp Ground Cumin
Sea Salt to taste
Some freshly ground Black Pepper

Method

Combine all the salad dressing ingredients and whisk well. Set aside.

Charred red chilies and place them in a small bowl and cover with a microwave safe plastic wrap for about 10 minutes. Peel the chili skin and discard the seeds and chop finely.

Set the grill on high and grill the corn for about 20 minutes or until they are fully cooked and slightly charred. When cool, remove the kernels from the corn.

In a large bowl, mix the shrimps with olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. Heat the grill on high and grill the shrimps for about 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Toss shrimps, corn kernels, onion, bell pepper, tomatoes, and chilies with the salad dressing. Season the salad with sea salt and black pepper. Lastly mix in the chopped coriander. Let it rest for couple of minutes and serve at room temperature.

  3. This looks like a great recipe for the 4th of July! One question though: Why does everyone leave the tails on the shrimp in dishes that aren't finger food? Am I the only one that finds removing tails on the plate awkward?

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
