Shrimp Avocado Dip September 12, 2010

Filed under: Recipes — susanpolizzotto @ 1:47 pm

A USC friend made this recipe and shared it with me. Without a doubt, every time I make it, I get a request for the recipe. So if you like shrimp and avocado, you’ll love this appetizer.

1 lb of shrimp, cut into small pieces (use larger shrimp. bay shrimp are less expensive, but the flavor is different)
1 avocado, cut into small pieces
1 box crumbled feta cheese (I’m not a fan of feta cheese, and so I leave this ingredient out. I think it tastes more “fresh” when it’s left out)
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
1/3 purple onion, chopped
tabasco sauce
salt & pepper
lemon juice

Mix everything and adjust the seasoning to taste.

In San Diego, the homemade tortilla chips from Harvest Ranch (a grocery store Del Mar) are light and salty and go perfectly with the dip. Otherwise, try going to a Mexican restaurant and get some of their homemade tortilla chips.
