Val's Spicy Tropical Shrimp Boats

Print Friendly and PDF
Are you looking for something different to serve your guests?  These shrimp boats have a refreshing taste to them - shrimp, papayas, mangos and jalapenos on endive leaves topped with a cilantro dressing. Val Kane's recipe originally came from the Trader Joe Cookbook, and all of the ingredients were purchased at Trader Joe's. This recipe is easy, simple to make, and your guests will be asking for more.

1 cup frozen Medium Cooked Tail-Off Shrimp, thawed
1/2 cup Fire Roasted Papaya Mango Salsa
Salt and pepper
1 head fresh Belgian endive leaves, separated
2 T refrigerated Cilantro Dressing
Cilantro for garnish

Dice the shrimp into cubes, then mix with the salsa.  Season with salt and pepper.  Spoon the mixture onto endive leaves. Arrange the shrimp boats on a platter and drizzle with dressing. Garnish with cilantro.
