Total Time:
2 hr 25 min
1 hr 15 min
1 hr 10 min

12 buffet servings

  • 2 pounds medium shrimp, shelled and butterflied
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely-minced garlic
  • 1 (2-ounce) tin flat fillets of anchovies
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup marinated sun-dried tomatoes, cut into large shreds
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 1/2 cup torn basil leaves, firmly packed
  • Toss shrimp with salt, 2 teaspoons of garlic and 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil. Season with fresh ground pepper. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Prepare dressing: In the workbowl of a food processor puree anchovies, including the oil from the tin, and lemon juice. With motor running, slowly drip in 1/4 cup olive oil. Thin with 2 tablespoons cold water to make a smooth, medium-thin dressing. If it's too thick, thin with a little more water.

  • Prepare a very hot charcoal fire or preheat broiler. Grill shrimp on a fine-mesh grill over coals, turning them once. Remove them as soon as they turn opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Or broil shrimp, turning once. Let cool to room temperature and set aside up to 1 hour. To assemble salad: In a large bowl toss shrimp with remaining teaspoon of garlic, pine nuts, anchovy dressing, sun-dried tomatoes, capers and basil.
