Ingredients

2 tbsp mayonnaise 30 mL
1 tsp ketchup 5 mL
10 drops Tabasco sauce
2 tsp lemonjuice, freshly squeezed
14 shrimp, small size, cooked 80 g
1 avocados 170 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1/2 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh [optional] 3 g

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, Tabasco sauce, lemon juice and a little salt. 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.
  3. Spoon out portions of the seasoned shrimp on top of each avocado half. Season with pepper. Sprinkle with chopped parsley (optional) then serve.

I made this using vegennaise. I also used "Sriracha hot chili sauce" find in the asian section of the grocery store instead of tabasco sauce.. but I only used 3 drops as it is very spicy.
