Seafood can be fancy, like grilled lobster tails, or casual, like popcorn shrimp, but we like it best when it's a little bit of both. That's why we're big fans of seafood salads. They showcase all the delicate flavors of seafood, but they're also easy to prepare, easy to enjoy and easy to transport.

Caesar Salad with Lemon Pepper Shrimp

Fine Cooking Books

This is what I call an ideal Caesar salad: Parmesan-packed Caesar dressing clinging to refreshing romaine lettuce, tossed with crunchy garlic-scented croutons, and made into an unforgettable meal with succulent lemon pepper shrimp. Not to mention it's completely guilt-free, with much less fat and fewer calories than the traditional version. If you don't like anchovies, don't let the anchovy paste scare you, it melts into dressing so you don't recognize it; it just gives that classic Caesar taste.
