Keto Avocado Shrimp Salsa

Share to save for later!

This keto-friendly Avocado Shrimp Salsa will be a delicious healthy shrimp salad for your family because it’s packed with amazing flavors and taste. It’s a little bit different from ceviche because we actually cook the shrimp instead of curing raw shrimp in citrus juices. This dish is like a hybrid of ceviche and pico de gallo.

Add a little hint of Mexico in your kitchen menu by making traditional salsa with shrimps. This will be a great low carb appetizer, side dish or lunch.

This recipe gives you a field for experiments: you can control its taste and spiciness, from adding red and green chili pepper to making a sweet version by adding berries. Either way it tastes good as cold, for work lunch, or as hot, you can use it as base for the light, late evening warming up soup.

In this course, avocado plays the key role as meat surrogate, full of monounsaturated fats, which are getting easily absorbed by the body. And full of iodine shrimp – a great substitute if you’ve been on keto for a long time but tired from eating meat in all its forms.

To make the serving more interesting, we suggest to use the empty cup-like skin from avocado as a serving dish and fill it with salsa and keto tortillas.

Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Prepare a skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil is heated, add the shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes. Turn the shrimp and repeat. Remove them from the pan and move them to a cutting board. Chop the shrimp into pieces and place them in a large mixing bowl.

Marinate cooked shrimp with lemon juice

Squeeze the juice of one lime over the shrimps. Stir well then place aside.

Add the diced avocado, tomato, and cucumber to the shrimps.


Dice cucumber, tomato and avocado
