recipe, avocado, shrimp, healthy, bell pepper, cheese, cilantro, lime, dressing
Cilantro Lime Dressing
bunch fresh cilantro
homemade or Tessamaes
apple cider vinegar
sea salt and pepper to taste
halved, pits removed
peeled and deveined
or more to taste
chopped bell pepper
I used orange and red
chopped green onions
crumbled Queso Fresco
or cheese of your choice - optional
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.
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.
