Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad

Who would have thought that the frozen cooked shrimp that I purchased some time ago due to an after football season sale of some kind, that I would actually have a purpose for it.  At some point I even thought, why in the world did I buy this crazy thing?  Shrimp is so easy to prepare, etc, etc.  Anyhoo, a friend made this dish last week and it's from a food blog that I love - Skinnytaste.com so I thought to give it a try as well.  Having that frozen cooked shrimp on hand just made the food prep that much simpler.





Thinking about making this dish?  You'll need the following:
  • Cooked shrimp
  • Avocado
  • Red onion
  • Cilantro
  • JalapeƱo
  • Tomato
  • Lime juice
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
My tip that I learned about the onions to make them less pungent is this - put salt on the onions and cover with water; let it sit for 5 minutes or so and then rinse them off.  I used white onions because I didn't have red onions.  I also used more cilantro that required.  I've found that you either have a love or hate relationship with cilantro.  I happen to love it so I don't measure; I just grab, chop, and throw it in!

I also didn't have jalapeƱos - they had gone bad - so I threw in some green chiles.  Green chiles are definitely not the same, but I used what I had.  Still not having the kick I preferred, I realized I had some pepper jack cheese in the refrigerator and so I placed a slice on a flour tortilla, put some of this zesty lime shrimp and avocado salad on it and wrapped it up.  Super tasty!

Yum-O,
