directions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the lime juice and zest, cilantro, cumin and oil and whisk well. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Do not marinate shrimp longer than 5 minutes or the lime juice will begin cooking the shrimp.
  • Preheat a barbecue or grill pan to medium-high heat. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper to taste and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly charred and cooked through, making sure not to overcook the shrimp. Remove the cooked shrimp from the grill and place on a serving platter, with a small serving bowl of the Spicy Hass Avocado Puree. Garnish the shrimp with fresh sprigs of cilantro and serve.
  • Avocado Puree: Add the avocado, lime juice, sour cream and jalapeno to a blender and puree until smooth, scraping the sides of the blender as needed. Season with salt to taste. Place in a covered, airtight container and refrigerate until serving.

    The flavors were great! I skipped jalapeno, used less sour cream and added some garlic salt to the avocado. DH commented how limey it was, but that could be b/c he was the official lime gadget squeezer! made for Culinary Quest 2014

    Loved how fast, easy and fresh-tasting this recipe was! The cool blandness of the avocado puree was a great juxtaposition to the fresh and tart grilled shrimp.

    I really enjoyed this. Split the recipe down to two persons and made the avocado puree for one.
