If you are looking for a light and refreshing meal that’s packed full of delicious flavor, I got you covered with this one! Cajun Lime Shrimp and Corn Salad fits the above description perfectly 🙂
End of summer corn is extra fresh and sweet, so it’s a great time of year to make this salad.
Getting the kids to help shuck the corn is fun too!
It reminds me of when my girls were little and they always loved helping with this job.
How to make Cajun Lime Shrimp and Corn Salad
Boil the corn for 10 minutes in some salted water.
Then remove and let it cool slightly before cutting the kernels off for the salad.
While the corn boils, it’s the perfect time to make the shrimp.
I tossed the shrimp with lime juice and cajun seasoning and made it in the air fryer.
Simply set the air fryer to 390 degrees for 8 minutes and the shrimp are perfectly cooked.
You could also bake them in the oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
Once the corn is cooled slightly, cut the kernels off the cob.
I have a handy dandy corn scraper that I got from Amazon and it makes this job easy peasy 🙂
You could certainly use a sharp knife to get the job done as well.
Place the kernels into a large bowl.
Into the bowl with the corn add the cooked shrimp, a diced tomato, avocado, feta cheese, and green onions.
Then some olive oil sugar, and more lime juice and cajun seasoning.
Gently mix all of this yummy deliciousness together and you have yourself one heck of an amazing meal.
Cajun Lime Shrimp and Corn Salad is best served at room temperature in my opinion.
We did have some leftover that I ate cold and it was a fabulous lunch the next day.
