Cook the pasta al dente, according to the instructions that come in the box. This takes about 15 minutes to be ready. When it is al dente, drain the cooking water and let it cool.
Marinade the shrimp in a bowl with the fine herbs, salt and pepper. Reservation.
To prepare the dressing, mix all the ingredients in a small bowl with the help of a balloon whisk to form an emulsion and reserve.
To prepare the arepas, mix in a small bowl, the precooked cornmeal, the cincho cheese and the salt. Slowly add the warm milk and knead continuously with your hands or with the help of a food processor. Once the dough is prepared, let the mixture rest for 5 min. Subsequently, take a piece of dough the size of a golf ball. Spread it between your hands until you reach a disc about 5 cm in diameter and 1 cm thick. Cook the arepas in a griddle over low heat (3 min on each side or until golden brown). Serve hot on a plate other than the salad.
On a salad plate, place a bed of lettuce and arugula. On these leaves, place 100 g of cooked pasta at room temperature. Decorate with artichoke hearts, pickles, onion, peppers, making circular shapes. Place 8 cherry tomatoes, 8 gooseberries and 8 goat cheese balls evenly spaced around the plate. Sprinkle sprouts and pomegranate grains to give more color and flavor to the dish. Crush the crowbar and decorate to give a crunchy and sweet touch.
The last thing you should do is cook the shrimp. In a wok or skillet to saute over high heat, place the butter. Once it melts, add the marinated shrimp and mix regularly. Approximately in 5 minutes, the shrimps should change their color to a pink tone; As soon as this happens, turn off the heat and serve the shrimp in the center of the dish with the pasta salad.
