Ingredients

  • 8 Argentinian pink shrimp 21/25 count
  • 1 tbsp. Tajin seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 5 oz. mixed greens
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves torn
  • 1 large nectarine pitted and sliced
  • 1 cup sugar peas cut on bias
  • 1/2 cup red onion thin sliced
  • 1/2 cup pecans toasted and rough chopped
  • 1/4 cup queso fresco

Honey Lime Dressing

  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat grill. Combine Tajin seasoning and honey. Toss with shrimp and let sit while you prepare salad ingredients. I grill my shrimp with the shell on for more flavor, then remove the shell when eating, but you can grill without shell if desired.
  • In a large salad bowl, combine mixed greens, basil, nectarine slices, sugar peas and red onion. Toast pecans in either your air fryer or oven. Lay in a single layer at and toast for about 5 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove from over and rough chop.
  • Skewer shrimp and grill for about 2.5 minutes on each side. Remove from grill and place in prepared salad. Drizzle with Honey Lime Dressing (see below) and garnish salad with toasted pecans and queso fresco.
