This Shrimp Meat Salad recipe is a favorite of our family.  Ideal for family night dinner or potluck for a crowd. Coldwater Shrimp from Oregon or Washington. The shrimp are already cooked and peeled.  I like that since that just cut down my work load.  Sometimes people refer to these Shrimp as Bay Shrimp.  I think this might be because a bay is smaller than the ocean?  This explanation sounds good to me.  They come frozen and you just need to thaw them out for your recipe.  Use 1 pound or 5 pounds of Shrimp Meat depending on how many you are serving.  Most of the time I just eyeball the ingredients that I add to the Shrimp Meat Salad.  Its so good left over!

Sunday nights I’ll add it to the menu for our 3 generation family dinner.  I send my Mom home with the left overs Shrimp Meat Salad for her lunch.  She grins from ear to ear!   The Shrimp Meat Salad turns out to be the best present I can give my Mom when her birthday comes round.  It’s great when the summertime heat reaches into the 90 degrees and no one feels like eating.  Sweet tasting meat that’s firm and lends well to the Apple Cider Vinegar dressing I whip up. Who can resist the little shrimps? Enjoy!


Shrimp Meat Salad

  • Shrimp Meat (salad size)
  • Celery (chopped)
  • Garlic Salt
  • Onion Powder
  • Celery Seed
  • Mustard* (dry or wet)
  • Hard Boiled Egg*
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Mayonnaise
  • Italian Herbs
  • Mix all the ingredients together. Add more or leave out ingredients according to your taste. Then add the Shrimp Meat and mix thoroughly.
    I make early in the morning and let the Shrimp Meat sit in the marinade for a few hours. Serve in a bowl or add lettuce leaves around it. ; – Some people do not like Mustard so I won’t include it.  If I want more kick I will add more Apple Cider Vinegar.  I love Celery Seed so I tend to add more.
