Grilled Shrimp with Corn and Black Bean Salad

Author: Canadian Living

The zippy flavours and brilliant colours of this salad complement tender, perfectly grilled shrimp. Grilling the corn concentrates the kernels' sweetness and adds a smoky accent.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb raw jumbo shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
Corn and black bean salad:
  • 3 corn
  • 1 can black bean drained and rinsed
  • 1 sweet red pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaf coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 boston lettuce separated

Method

Peel off shrimp shells, leaving tails on; cut each shrimp lengthwise down back and gently pull out dark vein running down back. In bowl, combine oil, lime juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, pepper and garlic. Add shrimp; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, husk corn. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat. Close lid and cook, turning occasionally, until kernels are tender and grill-marked, about 15 minutes. Slice off kernels to make 1-1/2 cups (375 mL); place in bowl. Add black beans, red pepper, onion and coriander.

In small bowl, whisk together oil, lime juice, salt, cumin and pepper. Pour over corn mixture; toss to coat.

Place shrimp on greased grill over medium-high heat. Close lid and cook, turning once, until shrimp are pink, about 6 minutes.

Divide lettuce leaves among plates. Top with salad then grilled shrimp.
