Ingredients

Cilantro Lime Dressing

  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro stems removed
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise homemade or Tessamaes
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 avocados halved, pits removed
  • 8 ounces raw shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning or more to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper I used orange and red
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Queso Fresco or cheese of your choice - optional

Instructions

  • Sprinkle the shrimp with taco seasoning, or seasoning of your choice.
  • Heat one Tablespoon of oil in a non-stick skillet. Add the shrimp and cook until pink and no longer opaque.
  • Remove the shrimp to a bowl or plate and allow to cool.
  • Place all of the dressing ingredients into the bowl of a food processor or blender. Blend until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  • Cut each avocado in half, lengthwise, and remove the pit.
  • Lightly chop the shrimp into bite-sized pieces. Mix the shrimp, bell pepper, green onions and dressing in a bowl.
  • Fill each avocado half with shrimp mixture and sprinkle with cheese, if using. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • If you have time, the shrimp salad tastes even better after it has been chilling in the fridge for a while.
  • Place any unused portions of shrimp salad in the refrigerator until needed. You can fill your avocados as needed if not eating all four servings at once.
  • Any cheese including sharp cheddar, Cojito, or Pepper-Jack would be delicious as well.
  • Don’t have shrimp, substitute canned tuna or cooked chicken.
  • I usually make a double batch of the cilantro lime dressing so I have extra for salads, a dipping sauce or extra avocado cups.
