Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Special equipment: 4 skewers

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. In a small saucepan set over medium heat, melt the butter and garlic together. Brush the corn with the butter mixture and reserve the remaining butter for a later use. Grill the corn until slightly charred and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the heat, then cut the kernels from the cobs and place in a large bowl. Stir in the arugula, cilantro, oil, parsley, tarragon, avocados, black-eyed peas, jalapenos, lime juice and onions.

  • Thread the shrimp onto the skewers, 4 per skewer, and brush with the reserved garlic butter. Sprinkle the shrimp with the paprika and some salt and pepper and then grill until pink and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.

  • Season the salad with salt and pepper, then transfer to a serving plate and place the shrimp skewers on top of the salad to serve.
