Shrimp Avocado Cucumber Bites – Blackened shrimp, creamy avocado atop fresh cucumbers slices make these a wonderful choice for a light lunch or perfect appetizer.
I have had a craving for more seafood in my life lately. We seem to gravitate to salmon each week but as I was standing at the seafood counter the other day, shrimp was calling out to me.
Shrimp Avocado Cucumber Bites
I simply cooked the shrimp in a little coconut oil and Old Bay seasoning and used them to make the most delectable shrimp tacos.
The bonus was that I had a just enough shrimp left over to also make a super healthy lunch served on a nice crisp little cucumber slice…aka these Shrimp Avocado Cucumber Bites.
They would make a fantastic appetizer for your next party as well.
