Removing the skins from fresh-shelled favas is a necessary task that's worth the effort. The prepared beans have a firm texture and a nutty flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook beans in boiling water 1 minute; drain. Plunge beans into ice water; drain. Remove tough outer skins from beans; discard skins. Place beans in a large bowl; set aside.

Step 2

Prepare grill.

Step 3

Thread shrimp evenly onto 6 (12-inch) skewers; brush with 1 teaspoon oil. Sprinkle shrimp evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done. Cool slightly; remove shrimp from skewers. Add shrimp to beans.

Step 4

Combine remaining 5 teaspoons oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper, juice, and garlic in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle juice mixture over shrimp mixture; toss to coat. Stir in parsley.

Step 5

Place 1 radicchio leaf on each of 4 salad plates; spoon 1 cup shrimp mixture into each leaf.

So simple and so yummy. This was my first time working with fava beans and now I'm addicted. They went so well with the shrimp. I'll be making this again!
