I usually buy a full pound of shrimp and cook all of it, but then I make it into salad in two batches. The salad doesn’t keep well, but the extra cooked shrimp will do great for a day or two in the fridge.
Sometimes I add some chopped fresh spinach to this salad to kind of bulk it up a little bit and get some extra greens in my life.
