Expert Tips

You can grill large shrimp or prawns, instead of boiling it.

Nothing’s more delicious and refreshing than shrimp cocktail. And if you add a creamy avocado flavor and a tuna and mango salad with lime, orange and cilantro vinaigrette, you will be able to please everyone with a magnificent dish on a summer afternoon spent outdoors!

You may substitute pineapple for the mango, if you wish.

And if you want to add a spicy touch to it, you can sprinkle with chili powder or top with sliced jalapeño to taste.

Directions

  • 1 Boil water in a medium pot. Add the washed shrimp, cover the pot and leave it in there for 2 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat, let rest for 5 minutes, take out and drain.
  • 2 Cut the avocados in half without breaking the skin; remove the pit and sprinkle with a few lemon juice drops.
  • 3 Open the can of tuna and drain all the water.
  • 4 Once the tomatoes, peppers, onion and cilantro have been chopped, combine with the previously drained tuna.
  • 5 Place all the liquids in a bowl: the honey, orange juice, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, olive oil and, lastly, add the grated yellow lemon zest. Stir.
  • 6 Add the vinaigrette to the tuna, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • 7 Fill the avocado halves with the tuna salad and top with the chunks of mango and a cilantro sprig.
  • 8 Arrange the shrimp along the edge of the avocado in a decorative manner.
  • 9 Serve the avocado immediately over a bed of a variety of lettuce. You can also add some scallion sprigs.
