Dive into the refreshing world of our Shrimp Salad, a perfect blend of tender shrimp, avocado, and zesty dressing. A delightful, healthy meal!

Shrimp Salad, a symphony of fresh ingredients, is a delightful dish that combines the salty goodness of shrimp with the creaminess of avocado and the crunch of lettuce. This salad celebrates light and refreshing flavours, making it a perfect choice for a quick and healthy meal.
The star of this salad is undoubtedly the shrimp, cooked to perfection and peeled, ensuring every bite is tender and flavorful. This salad is a burst of colour and freshness when paired with the creamy avocado and juicy, quartered tomatoes.

The dressing for this salad is where the magic happens. A blend of mayonnaise, lemon juice, ketchup, and a hint of Tabasco sauce (optional) creates a zesty, tangy, and creamy dressing that ties all the elements together. It’s this dressing that takes the salad from ordinary to extraordinary.

To serve, a bed of shredded lettuce leaves provides a satisfying crunch and a refreshing contrast to the creamy shrimp and avocado. Drizzle the dressing over the salad for that final touch of flavour.

Shrimp Salad is perfect for a light lunch or dinner, and it’s a great choice if you’re looking to enjoy the flavours of the sea more healthily.
