  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 cup cooked shrimp
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cut your cauliflower into bite sized pieces and wash well.  Rinse your shrimp and set aside. 
  • Add the cauliflower to a pot of shallow boiling water and blanch for 2 mins or just until it starts to become opaque. Make sure to not over cook! Remove from the heat, drain, and transfer the cauliflower to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.  Drain and set in the fridge to cool completely. 
  • In a small bowl add the mayo, dill, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Stir to combine and set aside.
  • Once the cauliflower has cooled, add the shrimp and the dressing and stir to coat all the cauliflower.  You can either serve it right away or keep it in the fridge till you are ready.
