Greek-Style Shrimp Salad on a Bed of Baby Spinach

  1. Thread shrimp onto metal skewers (or bamboo ones that have been soaked in water for 15 minutes). Brush both sides with oil and season with salt, pepper and a light sprinkling of sugar.
  2. Heat gas grill, with all burners on high, until fully preheated, 10 to 15 minutes. Use a wire brush to clean grill rack, then brush lightly with oil. Close lid and allow to return to temperature. Grill shrimp until fully cooked and spotty brown, about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Meanwhile, mix in a medium bowl the tomatoes, cheese, olives, oregano, 2 Tbs. of the olive oil and 2 tsps. of the vinegar. Unthread shrimp and add to bowl. Lightly toss ingredients to coat. Set aside. (Can be made an hour or so ahead.)
  4. When ready to serve, drizzle remaining oil, as well as a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper, over spinach in a large bowl. Toss to coat. Add remaining 2 tsps. vinegar; toss again. Divide spinach among 4 large plates. Top with a portion of the shrimp mixture.

It was too cold to grill, so I tossed the shrimp with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted them at 400 degrees for 6 minutes. I also added a teaspoon of minced garlic to the shrimp mixture fo...

Awesome recipe. I tried putting the shrimp in a bag with the olive oil, lemon pepper and sea salt and omitting the sugar as suggested by a reviewer before skewering. The shrimp tasted good enoug...
