  • 2 avocados cut in half lengthwise and pitted
  • ½ lemon
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons worcestershire
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound cooked small shrimp tails off


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the ketchup, mayonnaise, worcestershire, sriracha, ginger and salt until it's fully blended.
  • Add the cooked shrimp to the cocktail sauce, and toss to coat.
  • Scoop out some of the flesh from each of the avocado halves and squeeze the lemon half onto the avocados to help keep them green. Use the scooped avocado for another use.
  • Scoop the shrimp cocktail into the crevice of the avocados and serve immediately.
