2 lbs. Shrimp, Peeled and De-veined
1 lb Whole Tomatoes, Fresh
1 Jalapeno Pepper
1 Clove Garlic
2 Scallions, White Part Only
1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano, preferably Mexican Oregano
8 Pitted Green Olives, Halved
4 Tablespoon Lime Juice
1/2 Cup Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
1 Avocado, Diced
8 Oz Romaine Lettuce, Washed and Torn or Chopped
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
Preheat the oven to broil. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and cook shrimp for about 2-3 minutes until pink. Remove shrimp and shock in an ice bath until cooled. Drain, pat, dry, and set aside. Toss tomatoes, jalapeno, garlic, and scallions in olive oil. Transfer to a sheet pan and broil for about 5-10 minutes until outside skin is charred. Remove pan and allow to cool long enough to handle. Remove core from tomatoes, stem from the jalapeno, skin from garlic, and root of scallions. Place in a food processor and pulse until chopped or desired consistency. Transfer tomato mixture to a mixing bowl. Add olives, lime juice, cilantro, avocado, and shrimp, and toss well. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour over lettuce and serve. Enjoy.
