Dilled Shrimp Pasta Salad recipe:

Here’s a simple to make but deliciously unique pasta salad that combines fresh dill with shrimp in a flavorful dressing.

At only 7 calories per shrimp, we can eat a relatively large amount of this shellfish without using up too many of our daily calories. For example, a person eating 1,800 calories per day could consume 20 shrimp and only be “spending” about 8% of his or her daily calories. This very low calorie cost would not be so remarkable if it were not for the fact that shrimp provides us with significant amounts of so many nutrients. We usually have to eat foods with a far greater calorie content to get the nutrient richness provided by shrimp. For example, those same 20 shrimp that provide us with about 140 calories also provide us with 25 grams of protein or 50% of the Daily Value (DV).They also provide nearly 2 micrograms of vitamin B12—over 80% of the Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) level for adults. When this nutrient richness list for shrimp is continued across the list of other vitamins and minerals provided by this fish, it becomes striking how much nourishment can be provided by shrimp for less than 10% of a total day’s calories.

Here is what you will need;


1/2 pound fusilli rotelle (wagon wheel)

1 pound 1/2kg wild large shrimp (26 to 30 count); peeled and deveined

1 1/4 cup frozen shelled edamame or frozen peas

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons light mayonnaise

1 lemon Zest

2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 clove finely chopped garlic

3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

pinch cayenne pepper

3 cups baby spinach leaves

2/3 cup chopped fresh dill
