This grilled Caesar salad with shrimp is a delicious way to enjoy a healthy salad! Grilled romaine is topped with grilled shrimp, grilled onions, and grilled sourdough croutons for a delicious, light meal that is made entirely outside.




  1. Mix cleaned shrimp with lemon juice in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with blackening seasoning and toss to coat. Drizzle with oil and stir again to coat. Thread shrimp onto skewers.
  2. Heat grill to high heat.
  3. Cut romaine in half lengthwise. Slice onion into coins. Sprinkle lettuce with salt and pepper. Spray lettuce, onion, and bread with oil.
  4. Place onion and bread on the top rack of the grill or on indirect heat. Place shrimp over direct heat. Cook 2-3 minutes per side and remove from heat.
  5. Place lettuce, cut side down, onto direct heat. Cook 2-3 minutes, or until grill marks appear and cut side is just slightly wilted. Remove from grill.
  6. Continue cooking onion until soft. Continue cooking bread until crispy (for croutons), then remove both from heat. Cut grilled bread into 1-inch cubes.
  7. To assemble salads, divide lettuce between 2 plates. Top with shrimp, grilled onion, and croutons. Shave parmesan over salads and serve with homemade Caesar dressing.
