Balsamic Shrimp Salad

So delicious!!  I need to keep this shrimp in my fridge at all times for random acts of snacking.

Balsamic Shrimp Salad
from Will Cook for Smiles

Balsamic reduction:
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp honey

Balsamic shrimp:
1/2 lb large shrimp, cleaned and deveined
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove of garlic, grated
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp honey

spring salad mix
feta cheese

Balsamic reduction:  whisk balsamic vinegar and 1 tsp honey in a small sauce pot, over medium-high heat.  Once it starts to simmer, turn the heat down to medium.  Let vinegar slow simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture coats the spoon.  It will take 7-10 minutes.  Remove from heat when it reaches the right thickness.

Shrimp:  preheat a medium saute pan on medium heat.  Make sure all your ingredients are ready, at hand.  Add oil, balsamic vinegar, honey and garlic to the pan and quickly stir together.  Add shrimp and some salt.  Saute shrimp until it turns pink on one side.  Flip and cook until the shrimp are pink on the other side.

Salad:  top lettuce with sliced strawberries, feta cheese and shrimp, drizzle with balsamic reduction.
