Shrimp & Crab Louis Salad

by Crab-O-Licious
(Pacific Northwest)

This Shrimp & Crab Louis Salad is a perfect blend of ingredients for a cool down meal we found in Mccormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant Cookbook. Preparing it with crab meat and shrimp makes it a hardy meal to satisfy the hardiest of appetites!
This recipe yields 1 serving, so they say, but my husband and I share it and have a bowl of soup with. It is plentiful for the two of us!

For each serving...


  • 1/2 Head-Iceberg Lettuce

  • 4 oz. Thousand Island Dressing

  • 6 Cucumber Slices

  • 6 Pitted Black Olives

  • 4 Tomato Wedges

  • 2 Hard Boiled Eggs-halved

  • 4 1/2 Ounces-Bay Shrimp

  • 1 1/2 Ounces-Fresh Dungeness Crab or Lump Blue Crab

  • 1 Ounce-Thousand Island Dressing

  • 1 Lemon Wedge for garnish

  • 2 Sprigs of Parsley for garnish

Pile the lettuce in the center of a chilled serving plate. Arrange the cucumber, olives, eggs and tomato wedges around the lettuce. Spoon 4 ounces of the dressing over the lettuce. Arrange the shrimp and crab meat on top of the salad and spoon the 1 ounce of dressing on the shrimp and crab meat. Garnish with the lemon wedge and parsley.
Serve and enjoy this Pacific Northwest classic!
