  • 2 avocados cut in half lengthwise and pitted
  • 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb jumbo raw shrimp
  • Salt/pepper to taste

Cocktail Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp vegenaise
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp Sriracha
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • Pinch of salt


  • Scoop out some of the flesh from each of the avocado halves and squeeze the lemon onto the avocados to help keep them green.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat, add the shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes on each side, until opaque throughout. Remove from heat and squeeze some lemon juice on top.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the vegenaise, ketchup, sriracha, ground ginger and salt until it's fully blended.
  • Add the cooked shrimp to the cocktail sauce, and toss to coat.
  • Scoop the cocktail shrimp into the crevice of the avocados.
  • Garnish with parsley and lemon slices, if desired.
