Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh or frozen medium shrimp in shells
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 3 oranges
  • Orange juice (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or salad oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 cups torn mixed salad greens
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions

Directions

  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact if desired. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups water to boiling. Add shrimp; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are opaque. Drain in colander. Rinse with cold water; drain again. Transfer shrimp to a bowl.

  3. Peel oranges. Working over a bowl, cut oranges into sections; reserve 1/3 cup of the juice. (If necessary, add additional orange juice to make 1/3 cup.) In a small bowl, whisk together the 1/3 cup orange juice, the oil, vinegar, garlic, tarragon, salt, and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, combine shrimp, asparagus, orange sections, greens, and green onions. Pour dressing over all; toss gently to coat.
