Momma's Shrimp and Tada Salad

Getting reviews...
This is a recipe that feeds my beenyah soul. It's simple, but when you work from raw ingredients, as we did, it's a project. We had to catch the shrimp, then head, peel (shell) and devein them. Potatoes had to be planted, tended, dug, washed, peeled, cut and boiled. And all the other ingredients had to be bought, grown or collected. The sea and the garden, as well as all we did to harvest from both, come together in what remains one of my favorite dishes. I remember shrimp and tada salad filling my favorite bowl on Momma's Sunday dinner table. And my kids still beg me to fix it for them. Trouble is, I have to beg them to peel the shrimp. I still can't bring myself to buy precooked frozen shrimp, but this recipe will work with them, too.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Add the shrimp to boiling, salted water and cook 2 to 3 minutes (cook too long and they'll get chewy, then mushy). Boil the diced potatoes separately or in the shrimp water until tender but still firm, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the eggs until hard, about 10 to 15 minutes. Allow all to cool while you dice the peppers and celery.
  3. Dice the eggs and combine all of the remaining ingredients, adding the mayonnaise last, so you can control the texture of the salad. Chill and serve over a bed of lettuce or other fresh greens.
