Ingredients

  • Balsamic Reduction:
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Balsamic Shrimp:
  • 1/2 lb raw shrimp
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic grated
  • 1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • salt
  • Salad:
  • Spring salad mix
  • Sliced toasted almonds
  • Strawberries
  • Feta Cheese

Instructions

  1. Balsamic reduction: Whisk balsamic vinegar and 1 tsp of honey in a small sauce pot, over medium-high heat, and bring mixture to simmer. Once it starts to simmer, turn the heat down to medium. Let vinegar slow simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture coats the spoon. It will take 7-10 minutes but please note, that it will start to thicken fast during the last couple of minutes so keep an eye on it. Set aside once it reaches the right thickness.
  2. Shrimp: Preheat a medium saute pan on medium heat. Make sure all your ingredients are ready, at hand. Add oil, balsamic vinegar, honey and garlic to the pan and quickly stir all together. Add shrimp and some salt. Saute shrimp until turns pink on one side, flip and cook until shrimp turn pink on the other side as well. Don't walk away as shrimp cooks very fast.
  3. Top lettuce with some sliced strawberries, feta cheese, sliced toasted almonds, shrimp and drizzle with balsamic reduction.
