Shrimp Stuffed Avocados

There is something about shrimp and avocados that is just right. Cool shrimp with a touch of heat always gets me excited for summer. Seriously, the only thing that gets me through a rough, hot summer is the food. Shrimp and avocados are rather refreshing in the summer add a little citrus and some fresh veggies and now you’ve got a whole meal.

What I love about this dish is that it is healthy, light and most importantly super quick to make. Its KETO friendly, and carb free. If you try it out then let me know what you think!

    This is great. Usually in avocados you see plain poached shrimp. I prefer what you’ve done!
