Shrimp Salsa With Avocado is my favorite salsa of all time. It’s loaded with shrimp, avocado, and one surprising ingredient. The lime juice gives it such a fresh pop of flavor. It’s also really good with hot sauce. So if you want to serve it with hot sauce, if you like a little heat, I would suggest that, that’s what we do.
We make this recipe by starting with one pound of peeled and deveined shrimp, and lightly seasoning it with salt and pepper.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of oil. Once that’s hot, add the shrimp in a single layer and saute for about three minutes total or just until cooked through.

Remove the shrimp from the pan so they don’t overcook. Then coarsely chop them up and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Squeeze the juice of three medium limes right over your shrimp. Be sure to use fresh lime juice because it makes all the difference. Give that a stir and let the shrimp sit and marinate while you chop the rest of your ingredients.
Dice half of an English cucumber, and add them to the mixing bowl. Now dice three to four medium-firm tomatoes and add them to the mixing bowl. Peel, pit, and dice two large avocados. And add them right to the mixing bowl.
You can’t have a salsa without onion, so finely dice one small onion and add it to the bowl. Onion pretty much always makes me cry but it is so worth it. Last but not least, chop and add half a bunch of fresh cilantro. all that’s left to do now is stir. Make sure everything is coated in that super yummy fresh lime juice ’cause that’s where the flavor’s at in this salsa. To be honest, I’m desperate for it because this is my very favorite salsa of all time.
The avocado makes it a little bit creamy and it smells so good. I love that the cucumber kind of bulks it up and it tastes really good, adds a nice crunch. Now, dunk a chip in and let me know how it taste.
I hope you guys love this recipe. I know you will because we’re totally crazy about it and how can you not? Shrimp, creamy avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers. Everything about is good. If you love avocado, don’t miss the salsa.
