Tuscan White Bean Salad with Shrimp
Fragrant fresh rosemary and mild, creamy cannellini beans are a fantastic duo. Beyond salads, try mashing the beans with rosemary and olive oil for a crostini topper or stirring into soup. We add minced rosemary to the dressing here rather than simmering the beans with whole sprigs, which would be too strong. Poaching the shrimp in their shells keeps them from overcooking. You can make a quick stock from the shells for gumbos and chowders: Simmer with carrots, onions, celery, bay leaves, a few black peppercorns, and plenty of water for about 1 hour, and then strain and refrigerate.
How to Make It
Bring 8 cups water and wine to a boil in a large saucepan. Add shrimp; cook 4 minutes or just until opaque. Drain; rinse under cold water. Drain. Peel shrimp; discard shells.
Combine rind, juice, rosemary, mustard, and red pepper in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add oil, stirring constantly with a whisk. Add shrimp, beans, tomatoes, and onion to oil mixture; toss to coat. Add arugula to shrimp mixture; toss gently to combine.
