Caesar Salad with Grilled Lemon Pepper Shrimp
 Caesar Salad with Grilled Lemon Pepper Shrimp is a light and delicious weeknight dinner that is quick and easy to throw on the table! Peppery and Sweet bites of grilled shrimp with the smoky grilled flavor are the highlight of this dish!
One thing I love about the heat?  We eat light.  Dinner is usually simple, quick and doesn’t heat my kitchen up.  Ever since I had a Caesar Salad at 1844 House – with the delicious homemade Caesar Salad Dressing, I had had the urge to try making my own. Great places with great food/menus do that to me.  Mainly because you can’t out every day!
One of our favorite seafoods to cook at home is shrimp.  It is easy, fast and yummy!  I used Ellie Krieger’s recipe for Grilled Shrimp – very basic and very delicious!  The Caesar Dressing is from Gourmet and what I love about it is I don’t have to worry about coddling an egg (and getting queasy).

    I adore Caesar salad and have since the first time I ate it too. I'd have to sub in chicken for the shrimp here though or you'd have to do CPR on me. Great looking salad Shelby!

    What a great change up from the traditional Caesar salad. Love the grilled shrimp substitution. I'll have to try the Gourmet dressing version. I don't have a Caesar dressing go-to.

    Lemon pepper sounds fantastic on shrimp 🙂 I love it!

    Yum, looks terrific! Shrimp is a fave here as well as Caesar salad.

    I've wanted to make my own dressing for a while but haven't found anchovy paste. I've gotta track some down. I need to ask the grocery mgr at my Publix.

    I hear you on the heat, I tend to eat light when it's very hot outside. This salad is definitely the perfect choice on a hot day. The Lemon Pepper shrimp has me craving for shrimp now too

    Looks PERFECT for these meltingly hot days. I love anything with shrimp in it! Yum. 🙂

    This looks great. I wonder how it will taste with a fresh made Aïoli instead of the mayo….I'll have to let you know.
