How to Make Thai Shrimp-Stuffed Avocados
Any recipe that features avocado as the star ingredient is bound to be delicious. But the great thing about avocado—beyond the fact that it’s an amazing source of healthy fat and fiber, along with 20 other vitamins and minerals—is it’s incredibly versatile. Not only can you whip it up into the queen of all dips (guacamole, obviously), it’s also great in the form of avocado toast, avocado fries, and even avocado brownies. The options for avocados are truly endless. To add yet another amazing recipe to your arsenal, watch this video to learn how to make a Thai-stuffed avocado.
This tasty take on traditional Thai flavors is perfect for an appetizer or light meal. To make it yourself, begin by mixing together fish sauce, lime juice, tamarind paste, and sugar in a medium bowl. Then add some chilled, pre-cooked shrimp, and stir until evenly coated. Next, cut an avocado in half and remove the pit. Then take off the peel, while still keeping the halves intact. Top each avocado half with the shrimp mixture, then garnish with peanuts, cilantro, and scallion. The final step: If you’re a sriracha fan, drizzle on a healthy dose for that added punch of heat and flavor.
