  • Cut off top of the pomelo; score peel using a sharp knife, going about 1/2-inch deep into the peel. Pry peel and pith off the pomelo. Pull apart into 2 halves. Separate segments, peel off membrane, and remove seeds. Break the segments into bite-size pieces.

  • Toss pomelo with romaine lettuce in a bowl. Top with shrimp; garnish with peanuts and green onion. Drizzle dressing over salad; toss before serving.

Cook's Notes:

You can add dried chile flakes for extra flavor.

You can add crispy fried shallots for a crunchy texture. In a small saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons light olive oil over medium heat. Add thinly sliced shallots and fry until golden and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel to soak up the oil and cool.

this is very good and refreshing. If you like Poke, you will probably really like this. I think it could use just a dash of some kind of spice... wish I knew what it was, but something just to kick it up a notch. Maybe paprika or cayenne? I'll try it next time and see what's up. Read More

The amount of soy sauce in the dressing was overpowering. (I did use light soy) Perhaps 1-2 tablespoons would be more appropriate? Having said that, I came back to the salad leftovers the next day and found the juices from the pomelo and romaine had mellowed the flavour to the point where it was quite tasty. Read More
