Wow, is this a flavorful and very aromatic salad. Between the aroma of the blackened shrimp and those roasted oranges the kitchen smelled delicious!!!
I couldn't wait to get a bite of this salad. I love spicy blackened dishes and with the roasted oranges I new it would take on a whole new taste. It is a one of a kind creation and my very best salad I have made so far. I fixed my husband a blackened chicken salad and he loved it too. I would say if you are going to put the mango in try and use a fresh one. That's the only thing I would change.

I hope you enjoy my salad creation and find a new love for oranges once you try them roasted. Also, if you haven't tried blackened dishes I hope this entices you to do so.

Happy Eats!

How to Make Blackened Shrimp Salad with Roasted Oranges

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare your oranges, slice off the skin and white membrane. Then slice the orange and lay flat on tinfoil. Drizzle your vanilla over each slice, then generously add your cinnamon and then drizzle your honey. Add any orange juice left over from slices your oranges to the mixture.
  2. Place oranges in oven or toaster oven on broil. If toaster oven I ended up broiling them for about 20 minutes till they are nice and brown on top.

    Wow, the aroma is fabulous!!!
  3. Prepare your shrimp by cleaning and then sprinkling your blackened seasoning on them. I set mine over ice for about 10 minutes with the seasoning and then fried them in a pan with a little butter or you can use oil too.

    I enjoy both these blackened seasonings; however, I like the Louisiana one best. Plus I really like making my own blackened seasoning too.

    You can also grill your blackened shrimp or chicken. That is even better for you and would make this an extremely healthy meal.
  4. Next, lay your greens down and place your shrimp on the bed of greens. Add your fruit of pineapple, mango, cranberries and pecans and your olives. Now, add your most beautiful addition of roasted oranges. Add your choice of dressing. I just used a champagne vinagrette.
  5. I made my husband a shredded blackened chicken dish with his toppings. He doesn't like shrimp but only breaded and fried.
