I made this delicious, light, colorful dinner tonight and I think it was worth sharing. I found the recipe on a Facebook video ( I usually always save them and never make them 🙄) and it is quick and easy. I highly recommend it! The original #Recipe calls this a salsa but we ate it as a salad.
1 lb raw shrimp peeled and deveined*
1/4 tsp Salt and black pepper, or to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 medium limes, juiced
2 medium/large avocados
1/2 english cucumber
3 medium tomatoes
1 small red onion finely diced
1/2 cup Cilantro (1/2 bunch) chopped
1 Season shrimp lightly with salt and pepper. Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Once the pan is hot, add 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add shrimp in a single layer and cook 3 minutes total, turning once halfway. Saute just until cooked through then remove from the pan. Transfer to cutting board, coarsely chop and place into a large mixing bowl.
2 Squeeze the juice of 3 medium limes over the shrimp, stir and set aside to marinate while you prepare remaining salsa ingredients.
3 Dice cucumber, tomato and avocado and add them to the mixing bowl with shrimp.
4 Finely dice onion and chop 1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro. Add to the mixing bowl then stir together all of the ingredients until well combined and serve.
The original recipe served this as a salsa with tortilla chips. Since we’re trying to be healthy we ate this as a salad.
