Grilled Shrimp & Watermelon Salad with ‘Feta’ & a Balsamic Glaze

IMG_7566

Grilled watermelon, who would have thunk? I honestly have never considered to grill the luscious summer fruit but when I found this recipe I had to give it a try! The blend of all the flavors was perfection!

Let’s get to it…

  1. Prepare & store tofu ‘feta’ (find recipe here) or buy regular feta cheese
  2. In a small saucepan bring 1C balsamic vinegar to a boil – reduce heat & simmer til it becomes syrup consistency (~5minutes)
  3. Slice up a watermelon into 10 cubes (~1inch cubes) – brush sides with EVOO & set aside
  4. In a side bowl combine 2T EVOO, 1salt, 1t garlic powder, 1.5t fish seasoning & 1/2t black pepper
  5. Then toss 20 peeled & de-vained shrimp to the mixture bowl – skewer
  6. Add shrimp & watermelon to heated grill on high – about 3minutes on either side

To assemble each salad add a few handfuls of arugula to a plate, top with a handful of blueberries, crumbled ‘feta’ & the grilled shrimp/watermelon. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar & bam – a healthy summer salad!
