Directions

  1. For shrimp: In a medium bowl, whisk together oil, garlic, and red-pepper flakes. Add shrimp and scallions and toss to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. For the salad: In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, jalapenos, black pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon salt; let stand at room temperature while shrimp is marinating. In a large bowl, combine greens, avocado, and bell pepper.
  3. Generously coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Alternately thread shrimp and scallions into 8 skewers. Lightly sprinkle shrimp and scallions with salt and grill, turning once and basting with any remaining marinade, until shrimp just turn pink, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove shrimp and scallions from skewers and add to salad mixture. Add dressing and toss gently. Arrange salad on 4 plates and serve.
