What You’ll Need:

Shrimp: You will need about 1 1/4 lbs of shrimp.

Produce: I use a variety of produce, including mango, avocados, red onion, and the juice of a lime to make the avocado mango salsa. You can substitute the mango for cubed pineapple as well and it tastes equally delicious.

Avocado Oil: I use avocado oil for high temperature cooking and air frying. I specifically use Chosen Foods avocado oil because based on a study that came out in June 2020, Chosen Foods was found to be one of the few brands of avocado oil that was pure avocado oil and not rancid1.

Garlic: The shrimp are cooked in garlic for added flavor.

Honey: Honey adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the shrimp.

Directions:

  1. Devein and remove tails from shrimp.
  2. In a frying pan, add 1 tbsp avocado oil and 1 minced clove of garlic. Cook on medium heat for about 20 seconds.
  3. Add shrimp to the frying pan with the avocado oil and garlic. Saute the shrimp until the shrimp are cooked and turn pink.
  4. Add 1 tbsp of honey to the shrimp and mix. Turn off the heat and set the pan of shrimp to the side to allow to cool.
  5. Cut the mango and avocado into cubes. Add to a separate bowl along with the chopped red onion.
  6. Once the shrimp have cooled, add them to the bowl. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lime over the bowl and mix the contents of the bowl.
