Shrimp, Avocado, Cilantro Dip Recipe

This shrimp appetizer recipe is extremely tasty and makes a great presentation! I use this recipe for an appetizer but by doubling the dressing and increasing the rest of the ingredients, you can make it into a lunch entree as well. I arrange tomato slices on a luncheon plate – add a 1/2 cup of the dip mixture and serve with crusty chunks of an artisan bread.

How To Make Shrimp, Avocado, Cilantro Dip

Make a delicious twist to your usual dip with this experimental concoction.

  • 1 small red onion (finely diced)
  • ½ cup cilantro (chopped)
  • 16 oz. fresh bay shrimp (use less if desired)
  • 8 oz. tomato-basil feta crumbles
  • 1 avocado (cubed)

Dressing:

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 fresh limes (juiced)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper

Dressing:

  1. In a 2-cup measuring cup, combine the olive oil, 1/4 cup of the lime juice, salt and pepper.
  2. Whisk to emulsify and set aside.
  3. In a small colander, place separated shrimp, and drizzle with lime juice.
  4. Toss and set aside.
  5. Add the finely diced red onion, the chopped cilantro, the feta crumbles and the cubed avocado to a medium mixing bowl.
  6. Give the colander a gentle shake and add the bay shrimp to the bowl.
  7. Gently toss the ingredients until just mixed.
  8. Drizzle the dressing and gently toss again so as not to break up the shrimp meat.
  9. Serve with toasted Baguette slices.
  10. Tip: An easy way to cube an avocado
  11. After removing the pit, use the tip of a sharp paring knife to carefully make narrow lengthwise slices.
  12. Turn the halved avocado 90 degrees in your hand and make narrow slices creating cubes.
  13. Turn the avocado inside out over your mixing bowl and the cubes will pop off the skin.
