Avocado mousse and shrimps

When it comes to party foods, I find seafood having the best ‘WoW’ effect when guests are coming over. You can prepare this dish a day in advance at your leisure and then put it together when serving. Then you come out looking like a hero without a large amount of stress! This dish is also healthy!  At parties, it’s easy for stuff to be carb-y so it’s always a good idea to offer up an alternative.


Avocado mousse
  • 1 ripe avocado, de-seeded and spooned out of its peel
  • 1¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely diced
  • Basil
  • 1 lime
In a medium bowl, add avocado, salt, garlic, chopped basil and the juice from one lime. Blend with a hand mixer until the mixture is well incorporated and turns a light green color. Cover and store in the fridge until you’re ready to compose and serve.
Shrimp  salad
  • 1 lb shrimp (25-30 count), peeled and deveined
  • 1 lime
  • Chives  finely diced
  • Coriander  finely diced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Cherry tomatos
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cracked black pepper
  • Basil (as a garnish; optional)


Add in the shrimps, olive oil, ¾ tsp of salt, black pepper,  the juice of 1 lime, tomatoes and all the herbs into a bowl. Give it a light toss to mix in the ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to compose and serve.
