A quick meal with the perfect balance of rich, bold colors and delicate flavors.

Shrimp has been one of the most popular seafood in many households for many years. It is very easy to cook and readily available in many supermarkets, fresh, cooked, or frozen.  Seasoning shrimp with only salt and pepper should no longer be an option or even the norm for you anymore.

Shrimp can take a little spice. They absorb the aroma and flavors of fresh herbs and spices. Chives, parsley, and garlic are the best herbs to season shrimp. With the help of lemon or lime juice (whichever you use), the herbs release their flavors more.

Shrimp are highly perishable, and your buying process may not be easy or simple. Bad shrimp will give out an ammonia odor, indicating that the spoiling process has begun. Fresh shrimp should be firm to the touch, not slimy, limp, or fall apart. These are all signs of decay.

I am always looking for quick and efficient ways to feed my family and friends. This quick meal is the perfect way to bring everyone together. Both recipes are easy to prepare while chatting with friends or ahead of their visit.  My family loves to eat, and this quick meal can sometimes be somewhat challenging. The best way I have been able to avoid a lot of saying like “is the food ready yet” or “I’m hungry, can we eat now” is with planning. I usually plan my menu ahead of time to avoid lots of whining. Trust me! LOL

A few notes about this recipe for Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Avocado and Tomato Salad

My recipe for Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Avocado and Tomato Salad can easily be prepared with prawns if you prefer. Not much difference between shrimp and prawns. It is best to use extra-large shrimp or prawns because they are better for grilling and do not overcook quickly on high heat. Marinated in a mixture of herbs and spices and lemon juice is the preferred option for grilling. The taste of the lemon gives a succulent kick to the shrimp.

The Avocado and Tomato Salad recipe compliments the grilled shrimp. Small chunks of avocado mixed with tomatoes, red onion, salt, pepper, grapeseed oil, and a splash of lemon juice. Just delicious!

The final addition to this delicious meal is slices of crusty bread. I have always loved bread and avocado. The spicy grilled shrimp, avocado, and tomato salad recipe is the perfect quick meal on a busy schedule.
