INGREDIENTS

Biscuit Bowls
1can (10.2 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Layers refrigerated original biscuits
Dressing
1/4cup olive or canola oil
2tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
1tablespoon honey
1teaspoon grated lime peel
2tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4teaspoon rum extract
1small clove garlic, finely chopped
Salad
12oz cooked deveined peeled medium (32 count) shrimp, tail shells removed
1/2cup fresh sweet peas (from pods)
1can (11 oz) mandarin orange segments, drained
5cups torn leaf lettuce
2medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)

  1. 1Heat oven to 350°F. On ungreased large cookie sheet, turn 5 (6-oz) custard cups upside down; spray outsides of cups with cooking spray. Separate dough into 5 biscuits; press each to form 6-inch circle. Press each biscuit over bottom and around side of each cup. Using fingers, press dough around each cup, forming bowl. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove custard cups. Set aside. Cool completely, about 5 minutes.
  2. 2Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix dressing ingredients with wire whisk; fold in shrimp. Set aside. In small microwavable bowl, microwave peas about 30 seconds or just until heated through. Refrigerate while biscuit bowls cool.
  3. 3Place biscuit bowls on serving plates. Fold oranges, peas, lettuce and onions into shrimp and dressing. Spoon into biscuit bowls. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

One-half pound of pea pods usually yields about 1/2 cup of peas. Choose plump, tender, bright green pods. To shell peas, open the pod with your thumbnail. Frozen peas can be substituted, if you like.

One bunch watercress, tough stems removed (about 1 cup) can be used in place of 1 cup of the leaf lettuce.
