Mexican Shrimp Salad 🔥🔥🔥 {15 Minutes Healthy Meals Category} A refreshing salad for the hot summer days! This is spicy Mexican shrimp salad loaded with minced onions, herby cilantro, ripe tomatoes, and of course, a deliciously seasoned shrimp! Ingredients: Shrimp: 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted 1 teaspoon lemon zest ½ teaspoon EACH: garlic powder AND sugar 1 tablespoon Mexican hot sauce (sriracha or Louisiana works too will work too but use less for less heat!) ⅛ - ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes dressing + salad: 3 tablespoons Each: lemon juice and olive oil ¼ teaspoon ground cumin + pinch of cayenne pepper (⅛ - ¼ deepening on what you can handle) salt and pepper 2 large Hass avocados, diced 1 (8-ounce) container cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half 1/2 red onion, minced ¼ cup chopped cilantro 1 jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed and finely minced Instructions: Shrimp: Add the lemon zest, garlic powder, sugar, hot sauce, and red pepper flakes to a medium bowl and stir to combine. Add the shrimp and stir so that they are evenly coated in the marinade. Allow the shrimp to marinate at room temperature for 5-10 minutes or if you have time, cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. If you are going for the 10-minute option, you could chop the veggies while the shrimp marinates. Saute: When ready to cook, heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the butter is melted, add the shrimp and allow them to cook for roughly 1 minute, flipping it halfway through until they form into a ‘c’ shape. Remove from heat and set aside. Dressing: Add the lemon juice, olive oil, ground cumin, and a ⅛ teaspoon of cayenne with a big pinch of salt and pepper to a mason jar. Screw on the cap and give it a few good shakes until the dressing combines. Taste and adjust with additional salt, pepper, cayenne or cumin as desired. Salad: Add the avocados, tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, and jalapeños to a large bowl, along with the cooked shrimp. Drizzle the dressing over the top and toss to combine. Taste and adjust with additional seasonings as desired... Enjoy 🙌 ✓By @littlespicejar 🖤
