This month's Creative Cooking Crew challenge is "stuff it!"
Stuffed Avocado with Shrimp and Mango Salad
- 4 ripe avocados
- Juice of 2 limes
- ½ pound shrimp cooked
- 2 ripe mangoes peeled and diced
- ½ cup grape tomatoes quarter
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon chopped habanero pepper
- ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
- Salt and pepper
- In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, except the avocados.
- Cut avocados in half, remove the seed
- Drizzle lime juice over avocados, this helps keep them from darkening.
- Use a spoon to stuff the avocados with the shrimp salad and serve immediately.
By now my readers know my love for avocados (aguacates), and I always have avocados at my house.
So when the Creative Cooking Crew challenge theme was revealed, I decided to stuffed one of my favorite ingredients with a fresh salad to enjoy during the summer months. I made a shrimp and mango salad with lime and cumin dressing, then I stuffed the salad into the avocados.
This Stuffed Avocado with Shrimp and Mango Salad has a wonderful combination of flavors. It will make a great addition to your next summer party or brunch, or just make it for lunch for your family. Even my kids loved this dish!

I have not forgotten you...I still have to comment on past post. I am just in my place in South Beach and I am just in such a lazy mode.
I was also going to use avocado. Your dish is beautiful and refreshing. Absolutely lovely Erica!
You know one of the things I love about this is that I will actually make it. It's beautiful and approachable.
That dish just makes me feel cool and collected just looking at it. Lovely combination of flavors and very attractive to boot!
Better late then never to comment! I do know your love for avocado. This is a great, bright and delightful dish. Would love this salad right now.
I've had a very similar classic French dish which is really good, but this looks fresh and lite!! A perfect south FL soon too be classic I hope! thanks for this Erica!!
I needed this for my Spanish project now I need it to eat lol.
Who has 7 other friends these day to help eat this? I would do it a lot differently.
First Butterfly the shrimp all the way through then chop to the same size of the chopped mangoes not dices. Halved & Quartered the grape tomatoes. All should be about the same size, bite size.
Did I miss something I don't see any chopped habanero pepper, ground cumin, or
Salt and pepper?
