Lime, Shrimp & Avocado Salad

Image

I think LIME and CILANTRO are some of my favorite flavors…add shrimp and we may have reached perfection!  I made this as a side, but it would be fantastic as a filler for lettuce cups.

Total Prep Time: 30 min (Shrimp cleaning/deveining & cooking takes the bulk of the time)

Difficulty: 1/5

What you will need:

  • 1 lb jumbo cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, chopped* (Note: I always grill my shrimp over open flame…better flavor!)
  • 1.5 c of halved grape tomatoes
  • 2 hass avocado, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeds removed, diced fine
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 3-4 Fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1c chopped cilantro (I may have added more)
  • salt and fresh pepper to taste

How it’s done:

  1. In a small bowl combine red onion, lime juice, olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Let them marinate at least 5 minutes to mellow the flavor of the onion
  3. In a large bowl combine chopped shrimp, avocado, tomato, jalapeño.
  4. Combine all the ingredients together,
  5. add cilantro and gently toss.
  6. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
