Simple yet very pretty side dish. Add in options include drained, chopped water chestnuts, peppers (spicy), flavored mayo, or any veggie that will complement it.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 avocados, halved lengthwise and pitted
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • ½ cup cooked small shrimp
  • ½ cup frozen petite peas, thawed
  • ¼ cup black olives, chopped
  • ¼ cup diced sweet onion
  • ¼ cup diced celery
  • 1 dash garlic powder
  • 1 dash onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise, or as needed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Scoop out meat from each avocado half, and cube. Reserve the peels. Place cubes in a bowl. Sprinkle cubes and inside of peels with lemon juice.
  2. 2 In the bowl with avocado, gently mix the shrimp, peas, olives, onion, and celery. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Fold in enough mayonnaise to evenly moisten all ingredients. Spoon the mixture into the reserved peels, and serve within 1 hour.

  1. I love to make this for dinner it s easy and quick this is one of our favorites. I did make it with plain yogurt and it s very good.
  2. Made this as a side dish for ribs and chicken. Other than omitting the shrimp I followed the recipe and was very happy with the result. Will be making it again.
  3. This was good. I used red peppers instead of the olives and halved the mayonnaise. Ultimately I'm not sure all the additions add much if anything to the avocado.
  4. I made this without the shrimp varying the amounts of listed ingredients. Wonderful taste and color!
  5. I can see this served at a summer luncheon. I omitted the mayonnaise mostly because I forgot it but honestly I don't think it is needed. I also substituted diced red pepper in place of the black olives to give it some color contrast. The biggest surprise to me was the peas. I wasn't sure - Read more ...
  6. I wasn't a fan of this recipe at all. There were too many things going too many flavors or something. I won't make it again but if you're going to try it maybe use less onion. It was a pretty side dish though!
