Recipe by Mexi-Rosie

This is a favorite Christmas or special occasion dish in my household. The German consul's wife where I live, who is a reputed gourmet cook, was kind enough to share it with me and others who raved about it during a sit-down dinner she offered.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb clean cooked baby shrimp
  • 2 12 ripe sliced bananas (it's important that the bananas'peel look evenly freckled to insure sweet taste, though they should)
  • 13 cup drained green peas (can use less or more, according to your palate)
  • 12 cup your favorite mayonnaise
  • 14 cup undiluted evaporated milk (or more according to desired consistency)


  1. Dump shrimp into salad bowl.
  2. Add drained cooked green peas.
  3. Just before serving, add the peeled,sliced bananas (if done earlier than just before serving, banana might oxidize and look dark, though taste is not affected).
  4. Mix mayonnaise and evaporated milk to make a creamy dressing and stir into previous ingredients.
  5. No need for salt since shrimp is already usually salty.
