Lime and shrimp go beautifully together and the shrimp is the star of this dish. This is a great salad that can be eaten on it’s own as a main meal, or it can be eaten as a side or appetizer as well. It’s light and refreshing in flavor with the lime, avocado, cilantro and garlic all marrying well together. Also, it is easy to tweaked to personal tastes. 

 

What is shrimp?

Shrimp is a a small free-swimming crustacean with an elongated body classified as a decapod crustaceans.

 

Is shrimp healthy?

Shrimp is nutritious and fairly low in calories. It also provides a high amount of protein and healthy fats, in addition to a variety of vitamins and minerals. Shrimp also contains nutrients including antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to promote heart health. 

 

Are shrimp and prawns the same?

Both shrimp and prawns are classified as decapod crustaceans, meaning they have 10 legs and exoskeletons. However, shrimp and prawns are not even the same animals. Shrimp are smaller than prawns, and  shrimp are found in saltwater while most prawns live in freshwater.

Start by prepping all the ingredients. The shrimp needs to be cooked, peeled, deveined and chopped. I highly recommend buying fresh shrimp for this salad. However, frozen shrimp will work too. Once all the ingredients are prepped, place them in a large bowl, except for the avocado. Stir until all ingredients are combined well. Once ingredients are combined, carefully stir in avocado. I add the avocado last. since they are soft they get too mushy stirred together with everything else at the same time.

 

How do I store homemade shrimp salad?

Place the shrimp salad in an air tight container. Properly stored, it will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
