Grilled BBQ Shrimp Salad with Goat Cheese


A yummy & healthy salad thats great for dinner or lunch!

Prep Time: 5-8 min

Cook Time: 8min

Serves: 2


  • Spinach and baby greens blend 1/2 a bag
  • 1/2 Red Bell, sliced
  • 1/2 Orange Bell, sliced
  • 1/2 Yellow Bell, sliced
  • Red Onion, sliced thin
  • Broccoli 8 small heads
  • Cucumber, sliced then halved (leave skin on if you don’t mind it, thats where all the healthy nutrients are).
  • Stubbs BBQ Sauce or Salt Lick BBQ Sauce (Salt Lick Sauce is going to be not so “low fat”, Stubbs Sauce is a fat free option).
  • Goat Cheese Crumbles
  • 16 Wild Shrimp, medium size


  1. Prep grill and light (these can be also cooked in the oven on 400 degrees for 4 min each side).
  2. Peel and deveined shrimp (sometimes you can purchase them already deveined).
  3. Set shrimp in shallow bowl and toss with BBQ sauce, enough to cover, let marinade in fridge while your prepping produce.
  4. Place the bagged blend into two nice sized bowls
  5. Chop all produce and arrange in two separate medium salad bowls
  6. Top with goat cheese and freshly ground pepper
  7. Skewer shrimp, approx 4 per skewer
  8. Place on grill, 4 min per side, basting in between with BBQ sauce
  9. Slide shrimp onto top of salad and if desired drizzle with a bit of BBQ sauce

Try this great twist on salad next time you have the grill going.  I promise your taste buds will thank you 🙂

Also try buying local seasonal veggies when possible, it’s worth the slight increase in price.



About zestybeandog

I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!
