5 min.

  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4 cups spring mix (or your favorite lettuce)
  • 1/4 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup grilled corn

Add olive oil to a large skillet, and heat. Sprinkle shrimp with blackening seasoning.

Sauté until fully cooked, 3-4 minutes or until opaque.

Serve immediately with a drizzle of sour cream, ranch, or my Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing.
