  • When selecting avocados, choose ones that are slightly soft to the touch.
  • When selecting shrimp, opt for wild-caught shrimp as they are more sustainable and have a better flavor.

  • Instead of red onions, use shallots for a milder flavor. The benefit of this substitution is that it will allow the shrimp and other flavors to stand out more without the strong taste of red onions.
  • Instead of mayonnaise, use Greek yogurt for a healthier option. The benefit of this substitution is that it will reduce the amount of fat and calories in the dish, while still providing a creamy texture.

Mexican Shrimp Stuffed Avocado Replace the dressing with a Mexican-style salsa by combining 1/2 cup of your favorite salsa, 1 tablespoon of chopped jalapeno, and 1 tablespoon of lime juice. Replace the cilantro with fresh chopped cilantro. Add 1/4 cup of diced red onion to the stuffing mixture. Replace the lettuce with a bed of shredded lettuce. Garnish with a sprinkle of Cotija cheese.

Spanish Rice: Spanish Rice is a great accompaniment to the Equador Shrimp Stuffed Avocado. This flavorful side dish is a combination of white rice, garlic, and tomato sauce, making it the perfect complement to the savory shrimp and avocado. The garlic and tomato flavors will also help to bring out the flavors of the other ingredients in the dish.

Cilantro Lime Slaw: Cilantro Lime Slaw is a bright and refreshing side dish to serve with the Equador Shrimp Stuffed Avocado. The combination of cilantro, lime, and jalapeno creates a delicious balance of flavors that will complement the shrimp and avocado perfectly. The slaw also adds a crunchy texture to the dish that will make it even more enjoyable.

Yum! Shrimp with avocado is one of my favourites. The only thing I changed was using greek yoghurt with a bit of dijon instead of the mayo because I totally cannot stand mayo LOL Thank for sharing!

I liked this a lot - shrimp and avocados are two of my favorite foods. For two of us I had 2 avocados and one of them was yucky when I cut it open, but the results were still yummy anyway! Made for Lighten UP
