Avocado Stuffed With Shrimp

Avocado Stuffed With Shrimp created by Sarah_Jayne

Good friends introduced us to Avocado Surprise in Puerto Penasco so this is my take on it. I used Recipe#17293 to cook the shrimp. Could be an appetizer or summer luncheon dish. Preparation includes 1 hour to chill. You could also make the shrimp salad aspect earlier in day as I have done. After looking at Sarah_Jayne's review, I agree that the salad aspect is slippery so have changed the directions a bit so it "works" better.

directions

  • Using a medium sized bowl, mix mayonnaise, rice vinegar, parsley, dill weed, salt, onion powder, and pepper until smooth.
  • Mix in the shrimp, olives, celery, and onion.
  • Allow salad to marinate at least 1 hour.
  • Shortly before serving, cut avocados in half lengthwise and carefully remove the pits leaving the skins intact.
  • Cut a small sliver of avocado off each half so that it will lie flatter on serving plate.
  • Carefully remove several tablespoons of pulp, cut into bite size pieces, and RESERVE 4 tablespoons of pulp for garnish.
  • Mix majority of pulp with shrimp mixture.
  • Lay one piece of Bibb lettuce on each serving plate, add avocado shell, and spoon shrimp mixture into the avocado halves.
  • Sprinkle paprika on.
  • Garnish by dividing RESERVED pulp between portions.

    Wow. Delicious. I haven't reviewed anything in a long time even though I continue to use this as my go-to web-site for recipes, but this is such a winner I had to come and add my five stars to the chorus. The combination of flavors was spectacular. Loved it.

    How can I add this recipe to my Shrimp Collection? When I click on the Save Collection it does not all of my Collections.

    I made this minus the dill and subbing white wine vinegar. I couldn't have been happier with the result. The shrimp filling was made earlier in the day and refrigerated until I was ready to use it. I had this for dinner along with some Breton crackers and iced tea. Lots of wonderful rich flavors that were much enjoyed served well chilled on red leaf lettuce. Yum.
