What is a Keto Shrimp Avocado Salad?

It’s amazing how the combination of shrimp, avocados and dressing brings out the fantastic taste in this dish.
What Shrimp Should I Use for Shrimp Avocado Salads?
You can use either raw or pre-cooked shrimp, which will then be pan-seared.
This recipe and my preference is using raw shrimp that’s peeled and deveined.
Once it’s peeled you pan sear it in butter and garlic for 2-3 minutes until the shrimp turns pink.
Can I Use Frozen Shrimp for my Salad?
Yes! Defrost it first by letting it thaw out in the refrigerator or place it into a bowl with cold water.
How Do I Make Keto Shrimp Avocado Salad
1. Add the butter and minced garlic to a large skillet add the shrimp and the ground cumin to the skillet. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.
2. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or just until the shrimp changes color.
3. Remove from heat, and set aside.
4. Chop the shrimp and transfer to a large bowl.
5. Add the avocado, olive oil, lime juice, and fresh cilantro to the bowl.
6. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and gently toss to combine.
7. I like to divide the baby arugula between four meal prep containers or serving plates.
8. Add ¼ of the avocado shrimp mixture to each container or plate.
9. Divide any extras you’d like to include in your salad such as green olives, walnuts, and lime wedges between each portion.
Serve immediately or refrigerate for later.
How Long Can I Store My Shrimp Avocado Salad?
If you know in advance you're going to be storing your salad, separate it out into a bento box. It will keep your salad and ingredients fresh and retain the great flavor until you're ready to eat.
While it’s best to eat your salad, within 24-48 hours for the best flavor and taste. It can last in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Once you remove it from the refrigerator, you’ll want to mix it well before eating. This will get the dressing up and mixed into the salad.
