Creamy shrimp and celery salad

It is a light and refreshing salad, perfect for those days that you want a quick lunch that does not require heating. Old Bay seasoning gives it a little kick, cucumbers and celery give it the perfect crunch. Ideal for those hot summer days and a good choice for those who don't have gluten, need a keto recipe, or are just clean to eat. For a dairy-free, mayonnaise-free shrimp salad, you'll love my Zesty Lime Avocado Shrimp Salad Recipe, too.

To do this quickly, you can use thawed frozen shrimp. I always have a freezer bag to prepare quick meals. But if you want this to be even tastier, cook the shrimp yourself, it's easy!

How to cook shrimp for shrimp salad:

Boil a pot of water with 1/2 lemon. Add shrimp and cook 2 to 3 minutes, until opaque. Then transfer it to a strainer and rinse with cold water to prevent shrimp from cooking. You can also add them to a container filled with ice and water. Then drain and make your salad.

Variations:

  • You can change sour cream for Greek yogurt.
  • Swap the old bay with curry powder.

How long is the shrimp salad?

My rule of thumb when it comes to fish and seafood is to always eat it fresh and right away. This is not only for taste but also for freshness and the prevention of the growth of any bacteria that can lead to food poisoning. However, you can keep shrimp for up to 3 days in the refrigerator and store them properly in an airtight container. Be sure to store the shrimp within 2 hours after cooking.
