Makes 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh garlic
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • 6 large shrimp, cleaned and deveined
  • 6 cups arugula
  • 1 tbsp sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup cooked cannellini beans, fresh or canned
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsely
  • 2 tsp pine nuts

Directions

In a bowl, whisk 2 teaspoons of the olive oil with garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Add the shrimp and toss to coat well.

Generously spray a grill pan with nonstick cooking spray and set it over medium heat. When the pan is hot, grill the shrimp for 2 minutes on each side, just until pink and opaque. Don’t overcook them or they will become rubbery. Remove from the pan and set aside.

In a large salad bowl, combine the arugula, onion, and cannellini beans, then add the shrimp.

In a mini food processor, blend the lemon juice, the remaining olive oil, and the parsley. Drizzle over the salad and toss to coat all the ingredients.
