Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 16 oz. shrimp, follow same instructions as 8 oz. shrimp, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 1 and 2, flipping occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Core tomatoes and cut into 1/2" dice.

    Hold romaine heart at root end and coarsely chop.

    Pat shrimp dry. Place shrimp and cornstarch in a mixing bowl and toss or gently stir until shrimp are completely coated.

  2. 2

    Cook the Shrimp

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 Tbsp. olive oil and let heat, 5 minutes.

    After 5 minutes, test oil temperature by adding a pinch of cornstarch to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn’t brown, increase heat.

    Working in batches if necessary, add shrimp to hot oil and cook until golden brown and shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes per side.

    Transfer shrimp to towel-lined plate.

  3. 3

    Make the Buffalo-Butter Sauce

    Place butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, 20-30 seconds.

    Taste Buffalo sauce before adding; if spice-averse, add less. While stirring, pour Buffalo sauce (to taste) into bowl with butter until completely combined and a smooth sauce forms.

    Add shrimp to Buffalo-butter sauce and toss or stir gently until coated.

  4. 4

    Make the Salad

    Line another plate with a paper towel. Spread bacon on towel-lined plate and microwave until crisp, 1-2 minutes.

    In another mixing bowl, combine romaine, tomatoes, crisped bacon, and dressing (to taste).

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing shrimp on salad and garnishing shrimp with extra Buffalo-butter sauce, if desired. Bon appétit!
