Avocado Shrimp Salsa Recipe (VIDEO)

This Avocado Shrimp Salsa is a party favorite! Loaded with shrimp, avocado and a surprising ingredient! Easy, excellent avocado shrimp salsa video recipe. | natashaskitchen.com

This Avocado Shrimp Salsa is a cross between a pico de gallo, guacamole and ceviche. It’s our favorite salsa of all time – such a treat! We have made it at least a hundred times (NO KIDDING!!).

It has plump flavorful bites of shrimp, loads of avocado with the perfect amount of creaminess, crunchy cucumber, tomatoes of course and fresh lime juice which pulls it all together. The FRESH lime juice is key so don’t skip on it. That one ingredient adds enough flavor to the entire salsa where you don’t need any extra salt. Why is this awesome?? Your veggies will stay crisp (salt tends to soften cucumbers and tomatoes). Lime juice also preserves the avocado’s color so this salsa is still just as amazing refrigerated for the next day.

I am convinced that this is the perfect shrimp salsa. Watch the video recipe to see just how easy it is!

*We used raw shrimp here but we have been known to add pre-cooked shrimp to speed up the process. With pre-cooked shrimp – rinse under cold water, pat dry with paper towels then chop.

Skill Level: Easy
Cost To Make: $15-$20 (varies by size of shrimp used)
Serving: 6 to 8 as an appetizer

Ingredients

  • 1 lb raw shrimp, peeled and deveined*
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of 3 medium limes
  • 2 medium/large avocados
  • ½ english cucumber
  • 3 medium (or 4 roma) tomatoes

Instructions

  1. Season shrimp lightly with salt and pepper. Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Once the pan is hot, add 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add shrimp in a single layer and cook 3 minutes total, turning once halfway. Saute just until cooked through then remove from the pan. Transfer to cutting board, coarsely chop and place into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Squeeze the juice of 3 medium limes over the shrimp, stir and set aside to marinate while you prepare remaining salsa ingredients.
  3. Dice cucumber, tomato and avocado and add them to the mixing bowl with shrimp.
  4. Finely dice onion and chop ½ bunch of fresh cilantro. Add to the mixing bowl then stir together all of the ingredients until well combined and serve. We love this served with hot sauce (such as Tabasco) and tortilla chips.

Notes

*If using any sized pre-cooked shrimp - rinse under cold water, pat dry with paper towels then chop.

    This looks delicious, I just printed the recipe and can’t wait to try it. Just out of curiosity, do you know how much lime juice it would take if I used Real Lime juice out of a bottle instead of purchasing fresh limes? I like to keep lemon or lime juice in my fridge to add to ice water and thought I might try that instead. Reply

      Hi Krista, I would highly highly recommend using fresh lime juice. It just won’t taste the same using a substitute. Also, we have made this salsa with fresh lemon juice and it worked as well. Reply

      No… it is ceviche if shrimp is not cooked in a pan. The lime juice cooks it. This is not ceviche, Reply
