Combine remaining zest and remaining juices in a shallow dish for the marinade with oil, oregano, garlic, pepper flakes, and salt. Add shrimp; toss to coat, then chill shrimp until ready to grill, or up to 1 hour, flipping occasionally.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.
For the salad, whisk together reserved 1 Tbsp. zest, ¼ cup juices, oil, Parmesan, Dijon, garlic, honey, and anchovy paste in a bowl for the dressing; season with salt and pepper. Just before serving, combine romaine, avocados, tomatoes, and eggs in a large bowl; toss with dressing.
Thread five shrimp onto each of four metal or soaked bamboo skewers. Grill shrimp, covered, for 2 minutes per side.
Serve salad with eggs and shrimp skewers.
Zest the orange, lemon, and lime, then mince the zests together. They add intense citrus flavors to this salad.
A shallow dish allows all of the shrimp contact with the marinade. Be sure not to marinate the shrimp too long or they'll become tough.
