This shrimp salsa is a warm weather favorite and one I’ll be making all summer long! Made with mango, avocado, lime & cherry tomatoes, it is so delicious served with crispy tortilla chips or even in butter lettuce cups. Irresistible!
Okay, I have found our new go-to summer dish!!
Seriously, this shrimp salsa is about to be on repeat the entire summer. Let’s just say for the next six months, until it cools down again.
I guess we could SORT of say it’s like a ceviche, but really only in texture and slight taste only. I didn’t want to use raw shrimp at the moment since I’m pregnant and also since I knew the kids would be in it. Also, because half of my family members probably wouldn’t eat it then. Ha!
So here we are.
It’s like a faux-ceviche and absolutely delicious!
Let’s talk about how this is theeeeee absolute perfect go-to dish or the warm weather months.
First, you can prep nearly all of it ahead of time. I mean, you can fully assemble except for the avocado. Throw it all together, mix it up and add the avocado right before serving. Boom! Done. Incredible snack or app in just a few minutes.
Next, it’s SO easy. Again, just throwing everything together. If you find yourself in a super busy season of life right now, this is the dish to make. It feels elevated and almost elegant. But if you have some shrimp on hand, it just comes together so unbelievably fast. Even though I’ll have a newborn this summer, I can easily see this being a staple because of how simple it is.
Third, it’s a great dish that you can serve outdoors with a few friends. Perfect for happy hour. I realize that right now, having a group of people dip chips into a dish may be a little dicey for sanitary purposes. Fill up mini cups with this shrimp salsa and serve with your chips! You could even throw the shrimp salsa in little martini glasses like some restaurants do with ceviche! (more…)
