Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pat the shrimp dry; transfer to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss with 3 tbsp. of mayonnaise. Place the panko in a shallow dish. Roll the shrimp in the panko to coat.

  • In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat, turning once, until crispy, about 10 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Reserve the fat in the skillet.

  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the remaining 2 tbsp. mayonnaise with the buttermilk, chives, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Toss the kale and Brussels sprouts with the dressing, massaging the dressing into the vegetables; season.

  • Add the oil to the bacon fat in the skillet; heat over medium. Add half the shrimp in a single layer. Cook, turning once, until the panko is golden and the shrimp are just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with the remaining shrimp.

  • Toss the tomatoes with the salad. Divide the salad among plates. Top with the shrimp and bacon.
