1 teaspoon granulated garlic

1/2 teaspoon smoked sweet paprika

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons avocado oil

1 pound (21-25 count) Ocean Garden Mexican Shrimp, deveined,

1/3 cup Sauvignon Blanc white wine

For Dressing:

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup ketchup

1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce

1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish

1 tablespoon minced green onion

1 tablespoon minced parsley

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon granulated sugar

For Salad:

1 head iceberg lettuce, quarter lettuce in wedges

1 (6.5 oz) jar marinated artichoke hearts, per instruction

1/3 cup chopped celery

1/4 cup chopped scallions

6 Campari Tomatoes, cut into eighths

6 slices of crispy bacon, 1/2-inch crumbles, unprocessed natural bacon

1-2 ounces goat cheese crumbles

9 (1/4-inch) half slices of lemon

15 small basil leaves


Note: If crispy bacon is not on hand, back bacon first. Bake bacon on a rimmed baking pan, starting in a cold oven, at 375°F for 20 minutes. If bacon is not crispy, rotate pan and bake in 5 minute increments until bacon is crispy. Transfer to cooling rack, blot with paper towels. Crumble bacon in 1/2-inch pieces once it is cooled.

Prepare Shrimp:

In a medium bowl, combine Italian Seasoning, lemon zest, lemon juice, granulated garlic, smoked sweet paprika, red pepper flakes, and 1 tablespoon avocado oil. Remove and discard shells from shrimp. Refrigerate shrimp and prepare dressing.

Dressing: Whisk all dressing ingredients, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Cook Shrimp: In large skillet, heat the 1 tablespoon avocado oil over moderately high heat until shimmering. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until just pink, about 2 minutes. Carefully add the wine and simmer until the shrimp are white throughout, about 1-2 minutes. Immediately transfer from skillet, cool slightly before adding to salad.

Plate Salad: Place 1 wedge on each 4 chilled salad plates. Cut artichoke hearts into bite size pieces. Equally divide artichokes, celery, scallions, and tomatoes, over and on the sides of the wedge. Top with shrimp, bacon, and goat cheese. Garnish with lemon slices and basil leaves.

Serves: 4 Wedge Salad
