Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Toss shrimp with oil, thyme and garlic on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake until the shrimp are pink and firm, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Transfer the shrimp to a large bowl (discard thyme and garlic). Add lemon juice and stir to coat. Gently stir in cucumber, tomatoes and basil. Arrange the shrimp and vegetables in a serving bowl. Serve drizzled with any dressing left in the bowl and garnish with more basil, if desired.


Note: At her restaurant, Compère Lapin in New Orleans, CHEF NINA COMPTON pairs culinary inspiration from her Caribbean upbringing with Louisiana's indigenous ingredients, such as the shrimp in this salad. The Top Chef finalist chooses Louisiana wild gulf shrimp for their sweeter flavor.
