It’s noon on Sunday and my family is craving something tasty, healthy and light. So I decided to make Shrimp Cucumber bites that are perfect appetizers to enjoy on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
FOR THE SHRIMP
1/3 c. extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 c. lime juice
2 tbsp. honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. cajun seasoning
1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails discarded
FOR THE GUACAMOLE
2 tbsp. lime juice
1/8 spoon cayenne pepper
You can also add chopped tomatoes or red onion. It’s your choice
2 cucumbers, sliced 1/2″ thick
In a large bowl, combine oil, lime juice, honey, garlic, and Cajun seasoning. Season with salt. Add shrimp and toss until fully coated, then cover and leave for 10 minutes.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook shrimp until pink about 2 minutes per side. Remove from heat.
In a medium bowl, mash avocados. Add lime juice, red onion, tomatoes, some herbs, cayenne pepper and stir to combine. Season with salt.
Chop cucumber 1/2” thick, spread with guacamole each piece of cucumber and top each piece with tasty shrimp and garnish with cilantro or dill.
Bon Appetit and have a great Sunday!
