Avocado Shrimp Salsa
(as found on natashaskitchen.com)
This Avocado Shrimp Salsa is a party favorite!
Loaded with shrimp, avocado and a surprising ingredient!
P.S. Don't forget tortilla chips and Tabasco sauce to serve.
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 or 4 roma tomatoes
1 small onion finely diced
1/2 cup Cilantro (1/2 bunch) chopped
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. Sauté just until cooked through then remove from the pan. Transfer to cutting board, coarsely chop and place into a large mixing bowl.
Squeeze the juice of 3 medium limes over the shrimp, stir and set aside to marinate while you prepare remaining salsa ingredients.
Dice cucumber, tomato and avocado and add them to the mixing bowl with shrimp.
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. We love this served with hot sauce (such as Tabasco) and tortilla chips.
Serves 6 (as an appetizer)
