About the Recipe

It took me only 15 minutes to cook this recipe and the main trick to make it tasty is to use fresh and quality ingredients – shrimps, avocado, baby tomatoes.

When it comes to the greens you can use whatever you like or have available, for example, mix salad greens, baby spinach, Romaine lettuce or arugula. All greens are an amazing source of various minerals – such as magnesium, iron, copper, folate and vitamins. It is essential to have them included in our menu if you want to follow a healthy lifestyle.

And of course, avocado is always a great pair for a shrimp – so if you like it, do not hesitate to add. I always touch avocado before buying to check if it is ripe or not – it needs to be a little bit soft. The stem shouldn’t be brown though – otherwise, the avocado is overripe and will likely to have brown spots inside. If the avocado stem doesn’t release, it means it is not ready yet. Avocado has a low sugar content so this recipe is suitable for diabetics. It is also a good source of monosaturated fatty acids, which are so useful for heart and it helps to lower down bad cholesterol.
