A Simple Dinner:  SHRIMP CAESAR SALAD WITH PARMESAN

–shrimp (thawed from frozen, count 60 to 80 small, one-half package)

–butter lettuce (packaged)

–Caesar salad dressing (I use Paul Newman’s creamy Caesar)

–Parmesan cheese (shredded, packaged)

1 – Place half a package, about 40 small shrimp in one layered in a large, wide-mouthed, covered baking dish with an inch of water.  Microwave on high for 3 minutes.  When finished, add cold water to the dish, and then drain. 

2 – Place one-half package of butter lettuce in a mixing bowl.  Season with salt.  Add creamy Caesar salad dressing to your taste.  Then place one-half of the lettuce on each of two large plates.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Then place 20 shrimp on each plate.

3 – Serve the plate ready-prepared.
