Carb-Wise: Garlic-Caper Shrimp

with Blistered Cherry Tomatoes & Crispy-Crunchy Salad

Cooking time

20 minutes




440 /serving

Linger over the gentle contrast of temperatures in this warm, meal-worthy, shrimp-topped salad. When sautéing these pink seafood curls, there are few better companions than garlic, capers and lemon (particularly when you use the zest for some extra zip). Blistered cherry tomatoes spark up both the sauce and salad. It’s assembled from soft leaves of lettuce and crunchy roasted pepitas, and dressed with our honey-Dijon vinaigrette.
