DH and his friends were in a Madden FB marathon, and I whipped this up, a bit worried that it would not fit the 'manly man' crowd..however it was devoured! They all loved it! I provided both chips and shrimp, and several people were piling the shrimp on a chip with the dip!
The flavor of the grilled shrimp was excellent. The dip was also well flavored, but we preferred the shrimp without it. I did altered the prep for these shrimp slightly. After blending the shrimp basting sauce, I tossed it and the shrimp into a baggie in the fridge to marinate for about an hour. Then, instead of threading the shrimp onto skewers, I used a grill basket while grilling. The shrimp were tender and very good. We liked the avocado dipping sauce, but hubby prefered it with tortilla chips (like guacamole). This was an easy meal, and it did fit very well into my South Beach diet.
We really enjoyed this unique dip with the grilled shrimp. I used the adobo sauce from a can of chipotle peppers instead of the hot sauce, and just about a tsp of lime juice. It was a very quick recipe to make, too. I'll make it again.
I used 2 lbs of shrimp, doubled the olive oil mixture and had plenty of avocado dip for all. This was an interesting recipe because the dip was quite thick, I'm not sure how thick it was supposed to be because I wasn't sure how much lime juice to put in, but we enjoyed it. Once again DH said it was good and that's thumbs up for me!
