Steakhouse Cocktail Shrimp Wedge Salad

Steakhouse Cocktail Shrimp Wedge Salad with Roasted Asparagus My #3 Saucy Mama recipe that did not make the deadline. That’s correct, a recipe that I had completed and planned to make a few changes too and did not get the recipe entered in time. I loved this dish. I thought maybe it was to simple for the Saucy Mama Recipe Contest that was giving a Golden Ticket to the World Food Championships this November in Orange Beach, Alabama. So with my hesitation and busy days, I failed to deliver. The good news it, I still have a great recipe!!

Steakhouse Cocktail Shrimp Wedge Salad

My memories of great dining experiences often inspire a recipe creation. That is the case with this Iceberg wedged salad that is snow-capped with Blue Cheese Horseradish Dressing. Tucked underneath is roasted asparagus tossed in Saucy Mama’s Four Leaf Balsamic Dressing. The shrimp are tossed in olive oil and Saucy Mama Zesty Cocktail Sauce then roasted at 400 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, just until pink and firm and cooked through.

So here is to deadline fails and great recipes!!
