Nothing says summer is coming better than a shrimp and avocado salad. But to be honest, it kind of feels already like summer here in Japan! This salad is fresh and delicious! As I said in some of my previous posts, I want to introduce good carbs and good fats into my diet. This is where this salad comes from.
I had some shrimps that I had to use so I thought of making an avocado and shrimp salad with a homemade vinaigrette. For the vinaigrette, I used fresh basil from my garden. Feel free to double or triple this recipe and the vinaigrette as I only made enough for 2 portions. For other avocado recipes, you can also try this keto avocado salsa that you can top chicken, salmon and other types of fish.
Shrimp & Avocado Salad with a Fresh Basil Vinaigrette
- Heat 1 tsp of coconut oil in small frying pan; cook shrimps, sprinkle garlic and onion powder, stirring, until white-orange. Transfer the shrimps to a large bowl.
- Slice the avocado in half, discard the seed, scoop it out of its shell and slice it. Slice the tomato, cucumber, and green onions stalk. Add all veggies to the large bowl, cover with lemon juice, and mix well. This will prevent the vegetables from losing their colours. Thinly chop the basil leaves and garlic.
- In a small bowl, add the garlic, basil, olive oil, white vinegar, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Mix carefully with a spoon.
- Spoon the vinaigrette over the veggies in the large bowl.
Vinaigrette can be used for a variety of salads.
Replace shrimps for chicken for a meat version.
