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!



  1. That sounds so absolutely yummy Libby! I'll surely have to try it. Especially on a warm day when I don't want to cook. :)

  2. OMG Libby this looks so good! This would be excellent for lunch today =]
