Up Town Spinach Salad With Spicy Asian Dressing

"Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: Don't be scared of this recipe.It was harder to descripe and type then to make. This recipe is a twist on a scotch egg. When I saw the contest I thought why not. I made it and served it as a main dish. I thought it was great. You could serve it as a salad corse by using half of an egg and less spinach. The sweet chilli sauce is found on the Asian isle of most grocery stores."

  • Place a boiled egg in your palm and cover it completely with a portion of shrimp. Roll it in the beaten egg and set it on top of the hash browns. Repeat with the rest of the boiled eggs. Press as many of the hash browns as you can around the eggs, forming a ball. Set them on the clean plate and chill until the oil is ready. Save the left over hash browns.

  • In a small pot whisk together the chilli sauce, white wine vinager, and extra virgin olive oil and set over a low heat to warm.
  • When the oil is hot place 2 to 3 of the eggs gently into the pot,do not crowd them. Cook for 4 minutes, turning once half way though. Place on a cooking rach and sprinkle with the salt and pepper mix while hot. Remove any loose hash browns to the rack also. Repeat till all the eggs are done. Fry the leftover hash brown up and drain.
  • Toss the spinach, red bell pepper,and green onions with 1/3 cup of the warm dressing. Pile the spinach onto 6 salad plates. Sprinkle on the tomatoes and loose hash browns. Cut the eggs in half and place them in the center of the spinach, yolk side up. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper mix and serve them with the extra dressing on the side.
