By March 5, 2015Recipes


Repeat these two words after me, YUM and ME!!! 🙂  This dish is so yummy, and so easy to make, you will find yourself recreating it multiple times in a week!!  It literally takes 10 minutes to make!! It’s our Fabulous Garlic Shrimp Stuffed Avocado, people. Gaaaaah, we love it! So here it is, today’s recipe!!

Ingredients
  • 1 whole medium avocado
  • about 2 cups medium to large shrimp, raw or uncooked frozen (defrost prior to cooking)
  • 6-7 cloves garlic, minced
  • olive oil
  • coarse sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped
  • chili powder, optional

Directions

  1. Half the avocado and take the pit out.
  2. Scrap out most of the meat, leaving a very thin layer to hold up the shell better. Set aside.
  3. Chop up the meat into squares and place in a bowl. With your hands, squish the squares a little bit, to crush some but so that most keep their shape. Set aside.
  4. In a pan, place about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the minced garlic, a few cilantro leaves and the shrimp.11015313_10206143182918924_2089542978_n
  5. Add a dash of coarse sea salt, and over low heat, cook just until the shrimp turn pink. Do not overcook, or they’ll be dry and hard.
  6. Place the shrimp with garlic and olive oil into the bowl with the avocado pieces.
  7. Add some chopped parsley or cilantro and mix well. (If you want to incorporate some chili powder for extra flavor, do so now before mixing.)  I used Cilantro only, it’s my fav herb!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cilantro!!
  8. Spoon the mixture into the avocado shells, sprinkle with some freshly ground pepper, and garnish with additional parsley/cilantro if desired.
  9. Have a seat, kick up your heels, and consume this dish immediately.  So filling and so tasty!! Did I say it’s fabulously healthy too diva?!  Enjoy!!!
