Servings 1 serving


  • 1 cup cooked shrimp chilling in an ice bath this is 11-12 medium shrimp
  • 2 Tbsp diced celery
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • garnish as desired this is optional


  • In a medium bowl add the celery, mayonnaise, lemon zest and lemon juice. Whisk to combine, set aside.
  • Remove shrimp from ice bath, gently dry them off.
  • Roughly cut the shrimp, I cut each shrimp into fours. You want the shrimp in chunks.
  • Add the shrimp to the dressing, stir to combine, chill for 15 minutes (or more if making ahead of time).
  • Garnish plate (optional) as desired and serve (I used lettuce, mango and strawberries) and serve.


This recipe is for one serving, but you can certainly double the recipe for two servings or quadruple the recipe for four servings.
I did not salt and pepper this salad but that can be changed per your taste. My shrimp were already salty enough and I didn't feel the pepper was needed.
To save time you can buy cooked shrimp for this salad.
