If you’re looking for an impressive paleo hors d’oeuvres, or easy paleo entrée, this Paleo Shrimp Stuffed Avocado will completely amaze you and your guests. Such unbelievable flavor with so few ingredients, and minimal cooking time!

 

Being raised in California usually means one has eaten avocado in many forms for years. My family ate it often as guacamole and layered in sandwiches. When I started eating paleo, I was so happy to learn not only were avocados a paleo food, but they contained healthy fats and lots of folate, vitamin-K and fiber. I still eat sandwiches or have a Paleo Shrimp Stuffed Avocado with toasted slices of my Paleo Seeded Bread.

 

Paleo Shrimp Stuffed Avocado was one of the dishes I created to enhance the flavors of a dish that is similar to guacamole, but has much more protein and can be a stand alone entrée. It is a snap to make when you are short on time, and can be easily doubled or tripled for a larger party.

Paleo Shrimp Stuffed Avocado

  • Prep time:  15 minutes
  • Cook time:  5 minutes
  • Servings:  4

 

  • 1 TBS. duck fat, bacon fat, lard, light olive oil, or oil of choice
  • 12 (1/2 pound) raw shrimp, each cut into 3 pieces – cleaned, de-veined, tail off (I used the frozen 21-30 per pound size from Trader Joe’s)
  • 3 TBS. bacon crumbles
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp. dried dill

  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 medium avocados

1) In a large skillet, saute shrimp in oil of choice with bacon crumbles, spices and salt, just until they turn pink. Don’t overcook them or they will be tough. The shrimp only need a few minutes over the heat. Turn them while they are cooking so they all pink up evenly. When done, remove the pan from the heat to prepare the avocado shells for stuffing.

2) Cut the avocados in half the long way. Scoop out the flesh and place in a large mixing bowl with the lemon juice. Mash the avocado and juice until well mixed and creamy, without lumps.

3) Add the shrimp mix from the pan to your avocado mix. Make sure to scrape the pan with a rubber spatula to get every bit of the delicious spiced oil to mix in with the avocados.

4) Stuff the shells of the avocados and garnish with a sprinkle of dill.

 

That’s it! Easy peasy. You are not going to believe the flavor and taste bud satisfying punch of this super fast Paleo Shrimp Stuffed Avocado recipe.
