Healthy shrimp stuffed avocado is an easy appetizer or light lunch. A delicious filling of bay shrimp, crunchy vegetables and sweet mango. Check out the video in the recipe card to see how easy these are to make!
Who could resist being served one of these (or like we do, two of these)? I mean it’s a perfect way to get fruit, crunchy vegetables and spicy goodness all wrapped up in avocado, and there’s no heavy mayonnaise.
Nope, just mashed avocado and lime juice get the right consistency to hold all the bay shrimp filling together. These are so darn good.
Shrimp stuffed avocado
A perfect light and refreshing lunch or appetizer, this tropical influenced lunch is a quick one to make. The sweet mango plays well with the shrimp and I love the crunchy vegetables all mixed with the avocado and lime juice.
Sometimes I skip the avocado boat and just pile it on a plate with sesame crackers as a dip. This goes quickly, so make enough.
We usually eat one avocado each, so that’s two halves of these beauties and it’s a great start as the bavette steak is on the grill.
