Shrimp Stuffed Avocado
If there were such a thing as an Appliance Graveyard, mine would have plenty of headstones. I have gotten rid of quite a few appliances that used to take up lots of space in my cupboards.
Good news is I didn’t bury those appliances in my back yard like some kind of pet cemetery. I gave them away or donated them.
But why did I get rid of them in the first place? The answer is carbohydrates (carbs). So let’s take an inventory of what I got rid of and why...

Shrimp Stuffed Avocado
This is a ZReboot recipe. Great on a hot day or evening. Lite dinner with family or guests. Can be served totally cold if that’s more convenient. Just be sure to cut the avocados within a half-hour of serving so they don’t turn brown. The other mixture can be made ahead if you’d like.
Servings: This can also be made with just about any fish or seafood that you cook ahead. Scallops, halibut, sole and more.
½ pound of small, cooked shrimp (31-40 count); I take the tails off and cut them into thirds your favorite meat rub or spice mix, for this one I use approx ½ tsp Cajun or Mexican
1 Tbl of ghee or butter
2 Tbl of plain yogurt or mayo
4 green onions, diced (white and light green parts only)
½ red bell pepper, diced
1 Tbl of Worcestershire sauce
grated black pepper to taste
a dusting of garlic powder
grated sea salt to taste
1 ripe avocado, halved, take out the pit and toss.
The first thing I do is prep the avocado. Slice off a little bit of the bottom of each side so they lay flat. Then grate a little sea salt over the cut side and set aside.
This all comes together really fast, so if you want your shrimp warm as you serve, have everything ready to go. If you don’t care, (and it tastes great any temp) just follow along and you’ll still be happy.
In a medium bowl, add your diced onion and bell peppers. Mix with the yogurt, Worcestershire, garlic, and pepper. Set aside for the moment.
For the shrimp:
Take out a saute pan. Add the ghee or butter and melt. Add the shrimp pieces. Dust with the rub or spice mixture. The shrimp are already cooked, so I just toss them around so they get hot. Toss the shrimp into the bowl with the dressing mixture. Toss until fully combined.
Put your avocados on plates. Top with the shrimp mixture. The extras will cascade off the sides. This is a good thing.
Serve and Enjoy!
