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.
- 1 ripe avocado, de-seeded and spooned out of its peel
- 1¼ tsp salt
- 2 cloves of garlic, finely diced
- 1 lime
- 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.
