Ingredients

4 potatoes 800 g
2 eggs size large
30 shrimp, medium-large 300 g
2 tbsp capers 20 g
4 green onions/scallions
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
1/3 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed 2 lemons
1/2 cup mayonnaise 125 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Cook the potatoes, unpeeled, in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 20-25 minutes. Drain and let stand 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the hard-boiled eggs.
  3. In a separate small pot, bring salted water to a boil, then add the shrimp and boil until they are just cooked through and pink, about 2-3 min. With a slotted spoon, transfer the shrimp to a sieve and set aside.
  4. Finely chop the capers and scallions, then put them in a salad bowl. Pour in the olive oil, lemon juice, and mayonnaise, then mix well.
  5. Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1 cm cubes. Add them to the bowl with the dressing and toss to blend. Let stand 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and chopped boiled eggs. Serve at room temperature.

Quite tasty, though chopping the potatoes is a bit of a pain... I'd suggest chopping the eggs more finely and maybe cutting the shrinp in half for larger shrimp.
