In spite of the promise of fall temperatures, we are still getting hit with a few days of heat. This is one of my favorite meals for those too-hot-to-cook times of the year.
Shrimp and Avocado Salad
about a cup of cold, cooked shrimp cut into little pieces
2 avocados, sliced or chopped
2 or 3 leaves of leafy green lettuce per serving (optional)
1/4 cup Avocado Mayonnaise
a couple squirts of Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup finely sliced spring onion
1/2 tbs dried parsley
1/2 tbs smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine all ingredients except avocado and lettuce into a medium sized bowl. Stir together.
2. Arrange lettuce, topped with a bit of avocado and then a scoop of the shrimp mixture onto plate. Serve cold with a couple slices of lemon if you like.
