Recipe by Janet Taylor McCracken

Start to Finish: 30 minutes

Servings: 6


  • 2 lb. large shrimp—peeled and deveined, with tails
  • 4 tbsp. fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 6 tbsp. olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 lb. thin asparagus
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 3 peaches, cut into wedges
  • 2 tomatoes (about 1 lb.), cut into wedges
  • 1 container (5 oz.) baby arugula
  • 1 small fennel bulb—halved, cored, and thinly shaved, fronds reserved
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup crumbled feta


1. Heat a grill to medium-high. In a large bowl, toss the shrimp, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, and 2 tbsp. oil. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit at room temperature, tossing occasionally, for 15 minutes.

2. Drizzle the asparagus with oil; season. Grill, turning occasionally, until crisp-tender and charred in spots, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. Cut on an angle into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

3. Grill the shrimp until charred in spots and just opaque in the centers, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

4. In a large bowl, whisk the remaining 4 tbsp. oil and 2 tbsp. lemon juice and the mustard; season. Toss with the peaches, tomatoes, arugula, fennel, basil, asparagus, and shrimp. Top with the feta and fennel fronds.
