Ready in 15 minutes and so delicious! Serve it as lettuce wraps, inside a sandwich, or just in a bowl with a fork.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 6



24 ounces cooked medium shrimp, tails removed

1 celery stalk, finely chopped

2 green onions, finely chopped

1/3 cucumber, finely chopped

1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 fresh lemon, juiced

1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients until the dressing evenly coats the shrimp and vegetables.
  2. Serve inside lettuce leaves or on its own.
  3. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. 


If you want to serve in a sandwich, chop up the shrimp into smaller pieces.
