Who’s looking for a new recipe? My family loves shrimp AND avocados so what’s better than a shrimp avocado salad!  I try out a lot of recipes and some are good and others not so good.  This one is a HUGE winner and they loved it.

Shrimp Avocado Corn Salad Recipe

This dish doesn’t take long to prepare and it’s great when the weather is warm and you don’t want to turn on the oven.  It’s perfect for a summer (June, July and August here in NC) lunch when the kids are at home and you want something a little different. You can add it to a pita, tortilla or large piece of romaine lettuce (for a low carb meal).

I normally keep frozen cooked shrimp in the freezer.  It’s easy to pull out when you don’t have  a lot of time.   I have a bunch of shrimp recipes here that are all kid approved!

When I get home after 7 from practices and everyone’s starving, I want a fast meal.  Shrimp is perfect to have around for these nights.  My daughter likes to help out in the kitchen and is my official tail remover.

Ingredients this for shrimp salad

Avocados– Make sure your avocados are ripe and not too hard.

Shrimp– You can use fresh or frozen shrimp for this recipe. Like I said above, I normally use frozen to stay time. If you have raw shrimp make you cook it before adding it to the recipe. Shrimp doesn’t take a long time to cook, just place shrimp in a skillet with a little oil and cook a few minutes on each side.

Onion– You’ll want to use red onions for this recipe and finely chop them. Red onions just have a little milder taste. If you use a white on yellow onion you may want to reduce the amount you put in.

Corn– Canned corn is perfect for this recipe but you can up your game by cooking fresh corn and slicing the corn kernels off the cob.
