Step 1

Place shrimp in medium bowl, sprinkle with Cajun spice, garlic and pinch of salt and stir to combine.

Heat large non-stick pan over medium high heat. Swirl in butter. Once butter stops sizzling, add shrimp in a single layer and sauté about 2 minutes without disturbing. Flip shrimp over and sauté another minute or just until cooked through. Remove to a plate and set aside to cool.

Chop, rinse and spin dry romaine lettuce. Line the bottom of a large salad platter/bowl with lettuce. Add remaining salad ingredients and shrimp in rows on top of romaine.

Whisk ingredients for salad dressing in a small bowl and drizzle over salad and then toss to combine and serve.
