How to make it

  • Instructions:
  • 1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the lime juice and zest, cilantro, cumin and oil and whisk well.
  • 2. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Do not marinate shrimp longer than 5 minutes or the lime juice will begin cooking the shrimp.
  • 3. Preheat a barbecue or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  • 4. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper to taste and grill for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until lightly charred and cooked through, making sure not to overcook the shrimp.
  • 5. Remove the cooked shrimp from the grill and place on a serving platter, with a small serving bowl of the Spicy Hass Avocado Puree. Garnish the shrimp with fresh sprigs of cilantro and serve.
