Instructions
  1. Add shrimp and the BBQ sauce to a medium resealable plastic bag. Seal and marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-low heat. Thread shrimp onto skewers, piercing once near the tail and once near the head. Discard BBQ marinade.
  3. Cook shrimp for 5 minutes per side, or until opaque. (For a pop in flavor, baste shrimp frequently with additional BBQ sauce.)
  4. While shrimp is cooking, plate spinach.
  5. Evenly divide and top spinach with freshly sliced strawberries, pistachios, farro, blue cheese and mint leaves.
  6. Drizzle 1/4 teaspoon of EVOO over each salad. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Remove shrimp from grill, divide evenly and top each salad.
  8. Enjoy!
