Almond Sriracha Crusted Shrimp Salad

Hi guys, happy Friday!

I’m very excited to be sharing today’s post and recipe with you, because – there is Sriracha involved.

I recently had the opportunity to try a new product from Blue Diamond Almonds – their bold Sriracha flavored almonds. And I had no doubts I’m going to like it. If you haven’t noticed, I love Sriracha and have posted quite a few recipes with the use of it.

These almonds taste amazing! Love the bold, hot and deep Sriracha flavor. Perfectly roasted and salted. If you like spicy snacks, these are perfect for you. Beer lovers – you’ve got your new snack.  Serving size is 28 almonds with 15 grams of fat,

A day after getting these almonds, I quickly realized I must try a recipe with them, because one of the containers was almost gone. I love snacking, so does my husband, so I had to reserve the second container for my recipe.

I decided to make Sriracha Almond Crusted Shrimp Salad, which took minimal time to prepare and tasted great!

I also made a salad to go with it, but if you are not a salad fan, like we are, feel free to enjoy the shrimp on its own. It makes the perfect party appetizer. Make sure you serve it with a nice drink.

Almond Sriracha Crusted Shrimp Salad

I adapted a recipe from Blue Diamond’s website. For the salad, I used lettuce, tomatoes, avocado and some left over grilled asparagus. I made a simple Sriracha lime dressing, too! The flavor balance was amazing! Crunchy shrimp, asparagus, sweet tomatoes and creamy avocado. I’m sure the Sriracha lime dressing would be great on a lot of other salads, so I’ll make it again.
