      Oh My Heavens, I'm going to buy a case of avocado's and move to Spain! I loved the sound of this delight and had to try it but I couldn't bring myself to use all that fat. I lightly poached the shrimp in salt water until *just* cooked and for the whipping cream I used fat free liquid coffee creamer, I don't feel bad about the avocado because it's "good" heart healthy fat (I know, fat is still fat and we shouldn't overdo). The avocado mash is pure heaven and I could smear it on every thing (I'm currently considering the possibility of cake filling!). If you like avocado and shrimp run to the food processor and make this NOW!!!

      Wow, the avocado puree was so neat! It most certainly does come out silky smooth, and has a great flavor. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
