Warm Shrimp & Avocado Salad

Delicious and super easy. With only 4 ingredients, you can put this altogether in 5 minutes. #paleo #whole30


I had a ton of avocados that really need to be eaten… okay maybe really only 6.  But the need was real.  So between this and the only protein left in my home being shrimp.  This super easy and amazingly delicious recipe is born.

The wonderful aroma of browning butter and garlic is the thing my dreams are made of.  So try this one out tonight.  You only need 5 minutes and you will have this deliciously warm comfort food ready to enjoy.

Starting out, you only need 3 ingredients, everything here plus ghee (or grass-fed butter if not on Whole 30).  Not the best picture, but you get the idea 🙂

Next is just to start browning your butter.  Really recommend making sure your butter is beautifully browned before adding in your shrimp.  The shrimp (even if uncooked) cooks up really quick.  So to make sure it stays nice and tender, you only want to add in your shrimp at the very end.

So dice your avocado in the peel with a butter knife, and then spoon out into a bowl

Then when your shrimp is cooked, add to the avocado, and stir real quick.  And that’s it!
