For Shrimp:
Heat broiler and set tray close to the heat.

In a large bowl toss your shrimp with 1 tsp of oil and all chili powder. Season with your garlic salt and pepper to taste.

Place shrimp flat on a tray pan, and cook until browned and opaque, turning them over once every three minutes or so. This should take about 20 minutes.

For Salad:
Mix your mayo, garlic, anchovies, mustard, vinegar, and lemon juice. Then, slowly whisk in your olive oil.

Then, sprinkle in your parmesan, garlic salt, and pepper.
In a large salad bowl, toss in the dressing until your romaine lettuce is well coated.

Add your cherry tomatoes, croutons, and shrimp. Toss gently to evenly combine.
