How To Make Shrimp Louie

Shrimp louie is a salad that originates in San Francisco. It combines the shrimp with greens, avocado, tomato, and boiled eggs.

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 30 mins


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • cup ketchup, plus 1 tbsp
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb shrimp, large, peeled
  • ½ tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 avocado, ripe, diced
  • 8 oz cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, washed, rinsed and roughly chopped
  • 4 eggs, large, hard boiled and sliced in half.


  1. In a bowl whisk together the first nine ingredients until smooth. Keep in the fridge until ready to use.
  2. In a pan warm the oil and add the shrimp.
  3. Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning over the shrimp and cook until fully cooked, which takes about 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  4. In a large bowl combine the lettuce, tomato, shrimp and diced avocado.
  5. Add some of the dressing and toss gently. Add more dressing if desired or store any leftover dressing in the fridge.
  6. Serve the salad on individual plates with some of the hard boiled eggs on the side.
