Β 

Ingredients:

  • Β½ lb - 1 1b shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1-2 cucumbers, depending on size, cut into about Β½ inch discs
  • 1 tbsp Blackened Seafood Seasoning from Frontier Co- Op, or you can use any seafood or creole seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Hamama extra virgin olive oil

Guacamole:

  • 1 avocado, smashed
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp Hamama garlic greens, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt

Garnish:

Instructions:

  1. Toss your peeled, deveined shrimp in the seafood seasoning and oil in a bowl until covered well.

2. Get out a medium skillet and turn the heat on to medium high. Cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes on each side until blackened. Set aside.

3. For the guacamole: Take out your ingredients and chopped the herbs finely. Remove from the skin from the avocado.

4. Mix/smash all of your guacamole ingredients into your bowl and mix well until nice and smooth.

5. Chop your cucumbers next into medium size slices (thick enough to hold the shrimp up).

6. Get out your serving plate and assemble everything together: Start with the cucumber on the bottom, guacamole for the second layer and shrimp on the top. Garnish with extra fresh cilantro and garlic greens and enjoy! :D
