Lemon Zest Shrimp Salad

Posted by Callies Biscuits on

This is a recipe from our Hot Little Biscuit eateries. We were trying to get creative about how to use any leftover shrimp after our Thursday shrimp and grits special. The lemon zest shrimp salad became a huge hit as a new summer special! We use local shrimp from Tarvin Seafood who runs the Miss Paula shrimp boat our of Shem Creek. After we put shrimp salad on a buttermilk biscuit, there was no turning back.
