Honey chipotle shrimp salad from the Restaurant at the Getty Center

Dear SOS: Recently a group of friends and I went on a tour of the wonderful Getty Center. We had heard good things about the Restaurant and had made reservations for lunch. What a good decision: great view and amazing food. Several in our party ordered the honey-chipotle shrimp salad with cilantro-lime dressing. I have dreamed about it many times since that day. It was so good. Could you please see if the chef might share his magic?

Dear Virginia: The Restaurant at the Getty Center was happy to share its recipe for its honey chipotle shrimp salad, which we’ve adapted below.


Whole30 Summer Shrimp Salad + Zesty Chipotle Dressing

August has arrived and that means my Whole30 has officially begun. And so far? It’s the easiest Whole30 to date. Granted it’s been just 4 days, but turning down pizza, beer, wine, gourmet marshmallows and several other treats hasn’t been all that hard. I think at this point I eat healthy enough most of the time that it’s not a huge deal. I do still have things like pizza and cocktails but I don’t need them the way I used to. I also think that Whole30s today are much easier than when I did my first Whole30 because there are so many more complaint Whole30 options available at the grocery store. Like, New Barn Organic Unsweetened Almondmilk.

Yes, you can perhaps make your almond milk at home but quite frankly who has time for that? Especially when I’m on a Whole30 and prepping everything else in sight. Something I’m passionate about is consumer package foods that make our life easier while upholding high nutritional standards. And New Barn obviously falls into that category.

Lucky for us, New Barn’s Unsweetened variety is Whole30 compliant and I use it ALL.THE.TIME. Even when I’m not on a Whole30, but especially when I’m on a Whole30. New Barn’s Almondmilk is the quintessential real deal almond milk and the taste and texture come from actual almonds, not loads of additives and gums. With 3 times the amount of almonds than traditional almond milks, you can see why. Not only are their milks organic, Whole30 compliant but they’re Non-GMO, Kosher and Vegan. Talk about the great unifier!

Some of the ways that I regularly use my New Barn Organic Almondmilk on a Whole30 include in coupons, like in my Loaded Broccoli & Chicken Soup, my Whole30 Compliant Latte, dressings, dips and sauces.

This month I wanted to create a dish that would be perfect for summer, and this shrimp salad is all that. I’m obsessing about the flavors, there’s mango, avocado, jalapeño, chipotle, cilantro and so much more. And its incredibly easy to meal prep. You can make the dressings ahead of time, cook the shrimp and chop the veggies for a salad that’s easy to assemble for weekday lunches.

It’s easy to get bored on a Whole30 when all you’re eating is roasted sweet potatoes and tuna salad. Make sure to mix things up. Combine flavors you might not normally and buy proteins that you may not normally purchase. Things like this salad, particularly at the mid-way point, will keep you excited about your Whole30 and interested in food. Trust me, variety is key!

You can find New Barn products at your local Whole Foods. Make sure to grab a bottle (or three) for your next Whole30!

Camarones Al Chipotle (Chipotle Shrimp with Frisée Salad)

The flavorful play of shrimp with chipotle chiles appealed to me from the very first time I had it in a dish served at Pacos, my favorite seafood restaurant in Acapulco. Tortillas accompanied the shrimp so you could create your own tacos. Here, I've reshaped the taco concept into more of a salad. If you reduce the number of shrimp, it makes a wonderful & light first course. Salud! -Chef Richard Sandoval

CHIPOTLE SAUCE WITH GOAT CHEESE

1⁄2 cup crema fresca or crème fraiche, stirred (or sour cream mixed with a

1⁄2 cup chopped, seeded tomato

2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons soft goat cheese

1⁄4 chopped white Spanish onion

1-2 tablespoons honey, to taste

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

20 jumbo shrimp (11-15 per pound), peeled with tails intact, deveined

1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1⁄4 cup snipped fresh chives

Grated Cotija Cheese or Parmesan Cheese

DIRECTIONS

In a food processor or blender, combine all the sauce ingredients. Blend until a smooth puree. Adjust the seasoning with the honey. Using the back of a ladle or a rubber spatula, force the sauce through a medium-mesh sieve placed over a bowl. Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss together the frisee, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Make the chive oil. In a blender, process together canola oil and chives. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium heat. Season the shrimp with the salt and pepper. Add the shrimp to the skillet. Carefully add the tequila. Tilt the skillet to ignite the tequila, and when the flames die out, stir in 1⁄4 cup of the chipotle sauce. Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the shrimp are curled and cooked through, about 2 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp, which is easy to do. Place chipotle sauce, frisee salad and shrimp on a plate and garnish with chive oil and cheese. Serve.

    Tips for Making Chipotle Shrimp Bowls

    Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapeños that are most often found canned in adobo sauce and deliver an earthy, smoky, spicy bite and are found in Tex-Mex and Mexican flavored dishes. Chipotle peppers can add some serious heat to a dish, but are easy to control your by adding less or more of the pepper to whatever you’re making.

    I always prefer pink shrimp (usually from Key West) for their sweetness over Mexican or Indonesian black shrimp. To keep this a quick recipe, purchase your shrimp already peeled and deveined.

    These shrimp are equally delicious on their own as an appetizer, or in tacos or lettuce wraps or wherever your cravings take you.
