If you like Mexican food, this is a good recipe. I used 1 cup of the tiny salad shrimp instead of large shrimp, because this is how I had it served to me in a restaraunt. I didn't use as much cilantro (1/4 cup), and used 2 avocados. I just happened to find Chipotle flavored Tostadas and served the shrimp and avocado salsa on those. The taste is "supremo!"
