  • 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.
  • You can grill large shrimp or prawns, instead of boiling it.
  • And if you want to add a spicy touch to it, you can sprinkle with chili powder or top with sliced jalapeño to taste.
