GUAVA AND PASSIONFRUIT SHRIMP COCKTAIL SAUCE/DRESSING
Love shrimp but tired of ketchup-based cocktail sauce? Go guava with a kick of passionfruit. This fruit-based cocktail sauce is great to dip the shrimp in. I love it also as a salad dressing. Double the recipe to use as both a cocktail sauce and salad dressing.
INGREDIENTS:Cocktail sauce and dressing
3 red guavas (about 1/2 cup purée)
1/4" of a ginger hand
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
16 oz Romaine lettuce, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cups seasoned croutons
2 tbs Parmesan cheese, grated
12* precooked medium-sized shrimp, peeled and deveined
Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes, plus 2 hours of refrigeration
1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, place 4 cups of water. While bringing the water to a boil, wash and peel the guava. Cut off the ends. Cut in half around the middle, and cut in half again. Add to the water in the saucepan. Add enough water to cover. Keep at a slow boil for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.
*The number of shrimp is determined by their size. Buy enough for 4 servings; 12 medium shrimp are great as an appetizer for four people. Buy more if you'll be serving this dish as an entrée.
