  • Red Onion
  • 2 heaping Tbsp. Fresh Parsley

  • ½ cup Scallions
  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • ⅓ cup Mayo 



3.2 NET Carbs per Serving

Fresh Dill and Parsley have a much better flavor to use rather than dried.

Low-fat mayo can be substituted for regular mayo.

Add some extra veggies or spices of your choice, to make it the best shrimp salad for you.

Do not use the shrimp if they smell bad.

If you cook your shrimp yourself do not overcook or you will end up with tough, instead of tender shrimp.

Storing: If you have leftover shrimp salad, do not leave it laying around on the counter or table for too long. Both mayo and seafood need to be refrigerated right away so that they do not spoil.

Just store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and eat it within 2 days of making it.

Freezing: If you get the idea that you can freeze your leftover shrimp salad, do not do it. Both shrimp and mayo are 2 things that don’t freeze well.
