American House Recipe Box: Poached Shrimp and Pineapple Salsa with Chef James

|

Now that spring is finally here, now’s the perfect time to try out one of our tasty and simple appetizers. Our poached shrimp and pineapple salsa is a quick, light appetizer that’s easy to make and tastes great.

Here’s the recipe from our very own American House Chef, James Nickleberry.

POACHED SHRIMP

  • 8 medium shrimp (deveined, tail-on)
  • 1 cup of orange juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

In a medium saucepan, combine your orange juice, water, lime juice, bay leaf and paprika. Bring your mixture to a simmer. Add your shrimp and let simmer for 7 to 10 minutes. Once they’re finished cooking, pat them dry with a paper towel and chill before serving.

To accompany your poached shrimp, you’ll be making a light and fresh pineapple salsa. You’ll need:

  • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
  • 2 oz chopped green onion
  • 2 oz chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 oz V-8 juice
  • 1 oz chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeño pepper
  • Salt to taste

Chop all of your fruit and veggies, combine, and mix thoroughly. Serve the salsa in a shot glass or small dipping tray alongside your chilled poached shrimp.

Bon appétit!
