Avocado Shrimp Salad

 
 

Avocado Shrimp Recipe

 We all know how healthy avocado is.  Avocados are rich in potassium (more than bananas!), loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, full of fiber.

Eating avocados can lower Cholesterol and Triglyceride levels, according to Wikipedia.

 

Shrimp are low in calories and contain zero carbs.  They are great source of protein and contain a treasure – trove of vitamins and nutrients: iron, calcium, sodium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B12!

Thus, I was so psyched to prepare this recipe!

 

Ingredients:

 

6 medium size pre- cooked shrimp

1 avocado

Spinach leaves

Fava beans

Cilantro ( 2- 3 stems) , chopped no stem

Directions: 

1.       Place spinach leaves (as much as you want) into a big bowl

2.      Cut avocado vertically and remove the pit.  Slice the avocado inside the skin. Using the tip of the knife, slice into the avocado flesh, making sure not to cut through the skin.  Repeat until you have cut through the entire avocado.  Slices can be ½ inch thick.   Gently scoop the avocado out with a spoon, working between the flesh and the skin of the avocado.  Place the slices on top of bed of spinach leaves.

 3.       Arrange 6 medium size pre-cooked shrimp on top of avocado

4.      Place fava beans into bowl and sprinkle on top of salad

 Enjoy!
