Description

These delicious Lemon Thyme Caesars brighten up a weeknight dinner (or a lunch make-ahead!) with easy DIY croutons, seared shrimp, and roasted broccolini for your health.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE LEMON THYME CAESAR DRESSING:
  • ½ whole Lemon, Juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon Anchovy Paste, Or One Minced Anchovy Filet
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced
  • ½ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • ½ cups Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Thyme Leaves
  • FOR THE CROUTONS:
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 cups Bread Cubes
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • FOR THE SALAD:
  • ½ cups Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
  • 6 ounces, weight Broccolini Or Broccoli, Cut Into Bite-sized Pieces
  • Olive Oil And Salt, As Needed
  • 8 cups Salad Greens, Any Kind You Like
  • FOR THE SHRIMP:
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 12 ounces, weight Shrimp, Peeled And Deveined
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper

Preparation

For the dressing:
Whisk all ingredients in a dish (or shake everything up in a Mason jar) with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Taste the dressing and adjust the seasoning to your preference—I usually add a few more pinches of salt.

For the croutons:
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add bread and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss the bread cubes in the butter until they are well-coated. Toast the buttery bread in the skillet for 10–15 minutes until golden on all sides, turning the croutons every few minutes. When the bread is crispy, sprinkle over the Parmesan and turn the heat off. Toss the croutons in the Parmesan to toast the cheese just slightly, then transfer to a bowl or plate to cool.

For the salad:
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Arrange tomatoes and broccolini on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast vegetables for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven.

For the shrimp:
Preheat a large skillet to medium-high with the olive oil. Toss shrimp with the spices in a bowl until evenly coated. When skillet is hot, add the shrimp in one layer and let sizzle for about 2 minutes on each side until just barely cooked through. Remove from the heat.

To assemble the salads, place the salad greens in a large bowl and drizzle with a bit of the dressing. Toss with tongs and divide the greens among plates. Top with the roasted vegetables, shrimp, and croutons. Drizzle with extra dressing if you’d like. Enjoy!
