Ripe, sweet melon, marinated in citrus juices and mint and paired with simple grilled shrimp, makes a gorgeous and refreshing summer meal. Watermelon is high in lycopene, an antioxidant found in red plant foods.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbs. fresh orange juice 
  • 4 Tbs. fresh lime juice 
  • 1/8 tsp. salt, plus more, to taste 
  • 1 seedless watermelon, about 3 lb. 
  • 2 Tbs. lightly packed fresh mint leaves 
  • 1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined 
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste 
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil 
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese 

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the orange juice, 2 Tbs. of the lime juice and the 1/8 tsp. salt.

Cut the watermelon into quarters and remove the rind. Cut the fruit into 1-inch pieces and add to the juice mixture. Cut the mint leaves lengthwise into thin strips. Add to the bowl and stir gently to mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours.

Season the shrimp lightly with salt and pepper. Put in a bowl and add the olive oil and the remaining 2 Tbs. lime juice. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Prepare a hot fire in a grill and oil the grill rack.

Drain the shrimp and thread onto flat metal skewers. Grill the shrimp, turning once, until bright pink and opaque, 4 to 5 minutes total.

Gently stir the cheese into the watermelon mixture. Spoon the salad onto individual plates and push the grilled shrimp off the skewers onto the salad. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great after adding extra salt A first I was a bit disappointed with the dish, but I added more salt and the favors came to life. Definitely add more salt than the recipe calls for, or it will be bland.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refreshing and Surprising This is incredibly simple to put together. The key is marinating the watermelon for at least an hour. Add the feta at the last minute as it soaks up the surrounding flavors very quickly. The shrimp and watermelon pair so surprisingly well together! We served this as a side dish with less shrimp than recommended. It's not the most attractive dish, maybe larger watermelon chucks would work better?
