Blackened Shrimp Avocado Cucumber Bites

Posted on

 

I loved the idea of this recipe, but wanted it to come out a bit chunkier and not so much like a dip, so I added another extra avocado, chunked largely and only about 1/4 cup of the cocktail sauce. Also, a little fresh ground pepper. I served in martini glasses with extra shrimp garnishing the side of the glass. It turned out beautifully and tasted incredible.
Ingredients;

 

  •     For the shrimp and cucumber bites:
  •     1 tablespoon oil
  •     1 tablespoon creole seasoning
  •     1 pound shrimp, peeled and deviened
  •     1 cucumber, sliced
  •     1/4 cup remoulade sauce (optional)
  •     For the avocado sauce:
  •     1 avocado, mashed
  •     1 green onion, thinly sliced or chopped
  •     2 tablespoons cilantro and/or parsley, chopped
  •     1 tablespoon lemon juice
  •     salt and cayenne to taste
Directions;

 

  1. For the shrimp and cucumber bites:
  2. Toss the shrimp in the oil and the seasoning and cook in a preheated (medium-high heat) heavy bottomed pan/skillet until slightly blackened, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  3. Assemble the bites with cucumber slices, topped with avocado sauce, shrimp and remoulade sauce.
  4. For the avocado sauce:
  5. Mix everything and enjoy!
