 Directions for this easy healthy recipe:

  • If you are using frozen shrimps: In a large pan, cook shrimps! (Don’t eat them all after because this is what my kids do). Drain the water .
  • If you are using fresh shrimps: in a large bowl, cook them  for 10 to 15 minutes! Drain from water and clean! I don’t like cooking fresh shrimps because it smells so bad after.

  1. This looks amazing! Thanks for a great suggestion, I’ve been incorporating a lot of avocados into my diet lately so this is something I would love to try.

  2. Sounds interesting. Both are not my favorite foods, but I seem to be the only one. Might be a nice option for our next dinner together though.
