the same in both cases. To know how much oil to mix in with one's vinegar."

Grilled Shrimp Salad

Mr. B’s Bistro, New Orleans

Mr. B's is making an assumption or three:
1) You know how to grill shrimp;
2)You know how to oven-dry tomatoes;
3) You know how to caramelize onions.
 Not to worry. We'll help you out with some very
basic instructions in the notes below.

Serves 4

Shrimp Marinade
3 cups vegetable oil
1/4 cup Creole seasoning [recipe follows]

Combine the ingredients and pour over shrimp before grilling.

Balsamic Vinaigrette
2 cups vegetable oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 shallots, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree. Season with salt
and pepper. Refrigerate any remaining dressing.

12 Roma tomatoes, oven-dried and
cut in half lengthwise
1 cup onions, caramelized
32  marinated grilled shrimp
4 cup seasonal baby greens
1 cup balsamic vinaigrette
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled

Place tomatoes, onions, and the marinated grilled shrimp over
seasonal baby greens. Top with balsamic vinaigrette and feta cheese.

Creole Seasoning

Yields four cups

1/2 cup kosher salt
1/3 cup granulated garlic
3/4 cup ground black pepper
1/4 cup cayenne pepper
1/3 cup dried thyme
3/4 cup dried oregano
1 1/3 cups paprika
1/4 cup granulated onion
1/2 cup basil

 Blend all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Store in a sealed container.

To grill shrimp: After removing the shrimp from the marinade, pat them
dry with paper towels. They do not have to be completely dry, of course,
but neither should they be dripping marinade. Assuming you are using
large shrimp, you will need to grill them over hot coals (or broil them) for
approximately 3 minutes per side, depending, of course, on the degree of
heat you are using and the exact size of the shrimp. If they overcook, they
will be rubbery. Please avoid this!

To caramelize onions: Simply slice an onion or two (or cut into crescents,
if you prefer) and sauté in a generous amount of olive oil or butter over
medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until they are tender and just
starting to brown. The onions should be - you guessed it! - the color
of caramel.
