Recipe by Simply Sue

This is an adaption of an Emeril Lagasse recipe and a perfect side or main dish salad on a warm day. Use fresh corn when it is available, otherwise substitute frozen corn. Easy, unusual and delicious - what's not to love? Cooking time includes 2 hours to chill salad.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the water in a large pot and squeeze in as much juice from the lemon halves in as possible. Add the lemon halves themselves, the crab & shrimp boil, the bay leaves and 1 Tablespoon of the salt and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the corn kernels and cook 5 minutes. Using a skimmer, remove the corn from the boiling liquid and set aside to cool.
  3. Return the liquid to a boil and add the shrimp. Cook for 5 minutes. Drain the liquid, discard the bay leaves and lemon, setting the shrimp aside to cool.
  4. In a small mixing bowl or a glass jar with a tight lid, combine the olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, hot sauce, the remaining 1/2 Teaspoon of salt, black pepper and garlic. Whisk or shake to blend well.
  5. In a large salad bowl, combine the corn, shrimp, chopped herbs, onion, tomato halves, and chopped peppers. Add the dressing and toss to mix. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours prior to serving.
