Coldwater Shrimp Salad

1lbs (455g) Frozen Coldwater Shrimp, thawed (available via Clearwater Seafood or Louisbourg Seafoods)
¼ Cup (60ml) chopped celery
¼ Cup (60ml) chopped yellow pepper
1 tbsp (15ml) chopped fresh dill
1 cup (250ml) Lemon aioli (or enough to reach desired consistency)
salt & pepper
zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp (5ml) Tabasco (optional)

Mix all the ingredients together and add enough lemon aioli to reach the desired consistency. Serve on a buttered bun, such as a ciabatta loaf, with pea shoots or seasonal greens.

Lemon Aioli

1 egg yolk
¾ Cup (175ml) oil (canola recommended)
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp (5ml) Dijon mustard
salt & pepper

In a heavy mixing bowl combine the egg yolk with the dijon. Whisk in the oil, adding only a little at a time until you reach the desired “mayonnaise” consistency. Add the lemon juice and season to taste.

Please note: If desired, the egg yolk and oil in the lemon aioli recipe can be substituted with a mayonnaise or a whipped dressing and similar results will be achieved.
