Top Review by Annacia

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!!!
