Avocado Bravado 

Shrimp Stuffed Avocado

The other night I wanted stuffed avocado but the recipe I had was for Garlic Shrimp in an Avocado and my pallette didn’t want that. I thought about what I had in my fridge and what I wanted to eat. I gathered my shrimp that I purchased from a Element Seafood. They sell sustainable raised seafood so you get a better tasting product.

To really highlight the flavor of the shrimp I decided to create THIS….

I sautéed shrimp in a dab of Avocado Oil

I love this oil. I sometimes use this in place of Olive Oil and I purchased it from BJ’s Wholesale. I don’t always use precise measurements.

I squeeze fresh lemon on my shrimp to enhance the taste of the shrimp.

I sautéed seasoned shrimp. DO NOT OVERCOOK THEM. It will ruin the taste

I sliced & scooped out the avocado and placed it in a bowl

I added the following

  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Chopped Cilantro
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Lime Juice
  • Purple Onion

Add as much of each ingredient as you like. There is no way to mess up this recipe.

So since we’ve done so great with jarring our cake we went ahead and jarred our cheesecakes.

I ran across this recipe for Asparagus White  Cheese Pizza http://warmvanillasugar.com/2015/08/19/asparagus-white-pizza/

I changed it a little. It had a dough recipe but opted for store bought. I roasted the Asparagus a little. I tossed it with olive oil, salt & pepper. Roasted for 7 minutes.

Roasted Asparagus

I brought some Creme Fraiche and added minced garlic and set it aside to deal with the store bought dough.

I shaped the dough into a square and brushed it with olive oil & basil. I spread the mixture on the dough, added parmesan cheese, mozzarella & topped with the Asparagus

I let it cook longer than I should have but it was so DELISH…I added the shrimp

Fried Shrimp, Sour Cream Salsa, Lettuce & Wheat Tortillas

I am hating eating out more and more lately. Finding good paces to eat is hard. You have to go through a few BAD spots to get to find the GOOD one’s. Who has time or money? I just fine myself making everything I have a taste for.

Sooooooo. I made tacos….. I took sour cream added Salsa, Cilantro, Lime juice, Lime zest & Kosher Salt…..
