Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped (about two green onions)
  • 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 lb medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper

FOR THE DRESSING

  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

1. Combine the shrimp, garlic, oregano, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix well to make sure shrimp is well coated.

2. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the shrimp becomes pink. Flip and cook 1-2 more minutes on the other side until shrimp are cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside.

4. Combine the avocado, mango, tomatoes, celery, pepper, green onions, and parsley in a large bowl. Add the dressing and shrimp and mix well.


Notes

The dried oregano with shrimp is optional. I also like using the 1/4 tsp paprika with 1/4 tsp cumin or 1/4-1/2  tsp Old Bay or Cajun Seasoning.
