How To: Make a Warm Shrimp Salad with Beurre Blanc & Truffle-Soy Vinaigrette

Make a Warm Shrimp Salad with Beurre Blanc & Truffle-Soy Vinaigrette

Salad isn't everyone's first choice for a main dish, but when you try out this shrimp salad, you're sure to start making it your entrée instead of your side.

This is a beautiful salad that fuses Eastern flavors with Western methods, where the shrimp is sliced into creative rings and broiled for just a matter of minutes. World-famous chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten drizzles a truffle-soy vinaigrette over crisp greens, adds the shrimp, then spoons a warm creamy Champagne vinegar beurre blanc over the top. Simple preparation, yet complex to the senses.

  • 5-6 shrimp (16-18 count per lb), peeled & deveined
  • 1 tbsp butter + drizzle of olive oil for baking/broiler pan
