Low Carb Recipes
Here are a couple of salads:
Peel and devein shrimp. Combine shrimp with Old Bay, bay leaf, halved celery stalk, kosher salt, and peppercorns and steam 3–5 minutes, or until shrimp are just pink. They should no longer be translucent but will become a little tough if they are overcooked. Remove shrimp from steamer and cool. Chop into large pieces, about H inch. Add chopped celery, eggs, mayo, and mustard and mix. Add lemon zest, parsley, and dill and mix again. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve on mixed lettuce leaves. Garnish with avocado and pepper slices.
Season cucumber slices with salt and pepper.
Spread with cream cheese. Divide salmon into 24 pieces to put on top of cucumbers. Garnish each salmon-topped cucumber with ½ teaspoon Horseradish Dill Mayonnaise, red onion, and capers. Add grindings of fresh pepper.
Salmon could also be rolled around other ingredients and secured with a toothpick for bite-sized hors d’oeuvres.
Toss first 6 ingredients in a large bowl with vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper. Divide onto 4 plates. Arrange meats and cheese on top of each salad.
Combine lobster, celery, olives, and chopped egg. Add enough mayonnaise for desired consistency. Add mustard. Mix together. Stir in lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in parsley and basil or dill. Arrange on 4 plates, lettuce leaves first, then lobster mixture, 2 deviled egg halves, and avocado slices.
