Simply wonderful! We set these shrimp atop Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta and marveled at what a great combination this was. To us it was spicy but not fiery, JUST THE WAY WE LOVE IT! The name says it is "Spiced", so don't expect it to be otherwise. Avocado oil doesn't have a strong "avocado" taste; instead it lends a mellow finish, but it boasts a very high smoke point, so it is perfect for stir-frying. For example, I think olive oil imparts too strong a flavor for shrimp, but avocado oil is perfect for shrimp. So, just think about what your oil is contributing in terms of smoke point and taste, and pick the one that best suits your goal. Made for "I Recommend" tag game based on the recommendation by ForeverMama.

Flavorful shrimp for sure! Very good and easy to make shrimp dish. Especially good with lime juice squeezed over the top. Will definitely make this again especially through both my daughters request (both my girls LOVE shrimp). Thank you Irish in the City for sharing. PAC Spring 2014.

Hubby really enjoyed this dish...me...I thought the flavors were a bit too strong...all I could taste was the spices...this was very easy to prepare...but I do think any oil would work...didn't taste any avocado in my oil...thanks for posting the recipe...=)

Incredible mix of spices! This was my first time buying avocado oil (found it easily at a regular grocery store) and it's delicious, but these spices are good on their own so you could use another kind oil with great results. I may also try this spice mix for shrimp on the grill. Simple to make but so good!

I made this was half the amount of shrimp but kept the rest of the ingredients as is because I served this with rice and want some extra seasoned oil to pour over. I made regular rice and then added some fresh lemon juice and parmesan cheese. Then topped it with the shrimp and the extra oil. It was great. The seasoning are really good and not too spicy. I served it with lemon wedges instead of lime. Thanks. Made for the Bargain Basement game.

This was going to be my first recipe to post- as it is one of my favorite meals- but I found it here already! I wanted to give it a 5 star review, because I think it is a wonderful recipe. It is super quick, easy and healthy. I have not been able to find avocado oil so I use extra virgin oil. I also use Chipotle chili powder - somehow I started using it as a mistake, and have stuck with it. I serve this over a bed of saffron rice and the little bit of extra oil drizzles over the rice. It is easy enough to throw together after work. Great recipe!
