Sicilian Shrimp Salad

Serves 2

I have adapted this recipe from one of the first things I learned to make in a professional kitchen. I use shrimp in this version, but substitute octopus if you’re feeling adventurous.


  • ½ pound large shrimp, cooked and cleaned
  • ½ cup green olives
  • 4 ounces roasted red pepper
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper


Cut each shrimp in half and place in a large mixing bowl. Chop olives and pepper, and add to the bowl. Add arugula, almonds, olive oil, marmalade and lemon juice. Mix together by hand, salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.
