Ingredients

2 tbsp mayonnaise 30 mL
1 tsp ketchup 5 mL
10 drops Tabasco sauce
14 shrimp, small size, cooked 80 g
1 avocados 170 g

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, Tabasco sauce, a little salt and Cognac (optional). Add the shrimp to the bowl, then toss gently.
  2. Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the stone, then remove the skin while paying attention to keep the avocados intact. To avoid tipping, you may cut off a small slice from the rounded skin side. Place one avocado half on each individual serving plate.

This was a great quick recipe, I keep cooked frozen shrimp in the freezer and someone had given me a tip that a quick boil firms up the shrimp. That worked really well, removed the tails, dried them well before combining with sauce. Wasn't sure what to use for a side dish so added micro-greens and tomato wedges.

I used a salmon patty (frozen) instead of shrimp, cooked and broken up into shrimp-sized pieces. Served on baby organic spinach leaves. This was such a delicious recipe. I'll surely make it again and again!

I liked the sauce for the shrimp, but I didn't care for the shrimp with the avocado.
