Tropical Shrimp Cocktail

I whipped this little dish up tonight because avocados and mangoes seem to be rather prolific at the grocery store lately - must be the season in some other country!  We're also trying to get back into a semi-paleo lifestyle, and this is just the perfect dish!!!

Tropical Shrimp Cocktail
1/2 lb cooked shrimp, shells & tails removed
1 mango, finely diced
1 avocado, finely diced
1/2 cup English cucumber, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
dash (or more) of hot sauce
avocado oil for drizzling before serving

options for serving: serve as a thick and chunky shrimp "salsa" with some tortilla chips, on a bed of mixed greens for a dinner salad, or inside a buttery croissant for a shrimp salad sandwich -all delicious!!

Do all your chopping and combine all ingredients in a large glass bowl.  Serve right away and refrigerate any unused portions.

Love nights when I don't have to turn on the stove!! xo


  1. This looks like such a great twist on your regular shrimp cocktail! Lovely :) The avocados make me really want this.
