    Dear Natasha,

    I had an invitation in my house and i tried the shrimp avocado salad , it was so delicious and almost gone noting that many dishes were on the table. The way of making the shrimp is tasty especially with the Cajun although i have searched a lot for finding it.

      Hi Marina, if you can get your hands on wild caught (not farmed) shrimp, that is best. Otherwise, the peeled and deveined raw frozen bagged shrimp at Costco is the easiest to work with (very minimal prep required besides pulling the end tail off). Reply

      Hi Lilia, you could make that work but it is definitely best to use uncooked shrimp or they will be overcooked and rubbery and just won’t have the same flavor as cooking shrimp from raw. Reply

      November 18, 2017

      Hi Pam, that would work well :). For the shrimp, you might use half oil and half butter so the butter doesn’t firm up on the cooked shrimp overnight. I hope you love the salad! Reply

    Love corn, but for some reason I can’t picture it tasting all that good with shrimp and avocado. I’m going to make this recipe, but I will go a little easy on the red onion and substitute the corn with maybe some cucumber or zucchini. Maybe even add some pine nuts.

      Hi Eddie, we love corn in our family and the sweet fresh corn was a really good match with the rest of the salad. Fresh corn really makes it though so use fresh if you can. You could substitute and just add more cucumber or a little more of everything else. Reply

      Hi Nataliya, fresh shrimp and fresh corn will make all the difference in flavor and texture in this salad. Fresh corn adds an amazing pop of sweet flavor so I would Highly recommend using fresh corn. Also, re-cooking cooked shrimp will cause it to get rubbery and release water without really taking on the flavor of the seasonings as well. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      September 1, 2016

      Hi Dina, it really is best just before serving. The citrus in the dressing will keep the avocado from browning for a few hours but the lettuce will soften if you pre-make and pre-mix it with dressing. I would suggest prepping all the ingredients ahead of time and just before serving, slice up and add the avocado and toss with the dressing. Reply

      Oh wow having this salad on the beach takes it to a whole new level. That’s so fun!! I haven’t given an app much thought since we are always so crazy busy! I think once we buy a house, I’ll hire someone to free us up for other things 🙂 Reply

    In your opinion, what store and what brand has the best shrimp? Reply

      Hi Irina, it depends. The most important thing to look for is wild caught and if you get peeled and deveined, it will cut your prep in half for this salad and is way easier to make. Costco doesn’t have wild caught (bummer!) so I buy mine at Fred Meyer. Wild Caught is better because farmed are laced with chemicals from what I’ve heard and read. Reply

    Hello Natasha! I am getting ready to make this salad for a birthday party and I have a really dumb question to ask you: do I need to buy raw or cooked shrimp? Looking at the picture (before you add all the spices and saute it), the shrimp looks like it is pink and I am not sure if that’s just the type of shrimp, or if its not raw. Please let me know 🙂 Reply

      Hi Natalie! that is a totally legit question and I should have specified. Raw shrimp that has been peeled and deveined. If you buy peeled and deveined, it is way easier and faster than doing it yourself 🙂 Also, the shrimp was a wild-caught Texas gulf shrimp and it was pink when it was raw. Sorry I didn’t specify and thank YOU for asking! 🙂 Reply

    Made this salad for dinner on Sunday as a main meal and substituted shrimp for langoustine tails (wild from trader joes and cheaper than shrimp). I wanted to give you a super tight squeeze for sharing this amazing recipe. What can I say…..you are awesome Natasha!
    For those who don’t like sea food, you can omit it and still have a flavourfull salad. Don’t even think about using canned corn, the fresh corn really did make all the difference . Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    I have done something very similar to this salad before, but I used lime instead of lemon for the dressing. This salad is just so refreshing.

    Your website is amazing by the way! Reply

      Thank you so much Tina! I shared this recipe with my sister before I posted it (I let my whole family know when something is really really good! lol). And she said she loved it with lime juice also. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂 Reply
