  • 1 lb medium sized cooked shrimp peeled and deveined
  • ½ medium red onion diced finely
  • 2 radishes diced finely
  • 2 celery stalks diced finely
  • ½ red or green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs chopped
  • 4 tablespoons homemade cilantro mayonnaise or regular mayonnaise mixed with chopped cilantro and crushed garlic
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeds and veins removed, finely diced (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons of lime juice
  • Salt to taste


  • In a salad bowl, combine the cooked shrimp (whole or cut in half) with the diced red onions, radishes, bell pepper, celery, eggs, lime juice, cilantro mayonnaise, and salt to taste. For a spicy touch add diced jalapenos or hot peppers to taste.
  • This shrimp salad can be served immediately, but for best results I recommend letting it sit in the fridge for an hour or two before serving.
