So, as it does every year in Wisconsin, summer decided to just jump out of hiding after weeks and weeks of alluding us and yell, “I’M HERE PEOPLE!! AND I AM HOT!” I swear, every year we go from wearing winter boots to getting sun burns in the span of like two weeks. It’s totally ridiculous. It’s like one week I have all the ingredients to make our favorite soup and then I look around and my family is falling over itself because it is too hot to function.

So I am on the prowl for lighter dinners. And this Shrimp Scampi Salad is totally it. It starts with some of SeaPak’s Shrimp Scampi, which is super easy to use. It’s a matter of just throwing it in the oven, letting it bake, and draining it. It’s totally packed with all the great flavors of shrimp scampi, but then instead of throwing it over noodles, which would be perfect winter comfort food, you pile it on top of some amazing greens, toss in some shaved parmesan, asparagus, and a couple noodles. It’s all topped with a dressing that echoes the flavors of shrimp scampi.

It’s like everything you love about shrimp scampi, but without all the heaviness. Totally perfect for summer. Not only that, but it’s made with SeaPak shrimp, which is delicious but also means that it’s super easy to throw together. My family loves making dinners with SeaPak, like this pot pie and OMG, these tacos. It’s a staple in our freezer all the time. Perfect for busy weeknight meals that somehow still plague us in the summer.

    OOOH this looks so good, Lisa! I love the flavors of scampi, but I also find it’s too heavy for me. Definitely going to try this- it’s hot where I am too, so this is getting saved and pinned for a great dinner!
