BAKED SHRIMP STUFFED AVOCADOS

Avocados are stuffed with a creamy shrimp filling and sprinkled with cheese before being baked for a warm, melted cheese finish. These baked shrimp stuffed avocados are ready in less than 30 minutes.


This recipe couldn’t be easier. But it tastes much more complex than it actually is. With a few seasonings and herbs, the shrimp filling tastes like a flavor-packed seafood stuffing. The avocado goes very well with the stuffing and contributes to its creaminess.


After whipping up the filling and stuffing the avocados, I sprinkled them with cheese and baked them for a few minutes so that everything would be warm and the cheese was melted.


But I try to left a few unbaked and without cheese and you know what? They tasted really great that way as well. Like a shrimp stuffed avocado salad. So really, you can serve these baked or chilled.
