“Yet another recipe from the 500 ALL-TIME GREAT RECIPES cookbook, but I've tweaked it a bit, making the anchovies optional, VERY OPTIONAL for me, at least!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice mushrooms thinly, then cut into matchsticks.
  2. Combine mayo & lemon juice.
  3. Fold half the mayo mixture into the mushrooms & shrimp, then add dill pickle & season to taste with salt & pepper.
  4. Bring large saucepan of salted water to boil, then add fava beans & cook 3 minutes.
  5. Drain & cool under running water, then pinch beans between thumb & forefinger to release them from their tough skins.
  6. Boil potatoes 20 minutes & the remaining vegetables for 6 minutes.
  7. Drain & cool under running water.
  8. Toss vegetables with oil & divide among 4 shallow bowls.
  9. Spoon on the dressed shrimp & place a hard-cooked egg in the center.
  10. OPTIONAL ~ If using anchovies, cut into fine strips & with 2 strips make an X on top of each egg, then sprinkle with paprika.
