Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad



Zesty lime juice and cilantro are the key ingredients to creating this light and refreshing salad, no heavy mayonnaise to weigh it down. Made with the freshest ingredients; jumbo shrimp, avocados, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and chopped jalapeño tossed with some freshly squeezed lime juice and a touch of olive oil.

This will be a huge hit at your Cinco de Mayo fiesta or summer bash! Serve this as is for an appetizer, or over lettuce o tostadas for a lunch or light meal. You can easily adapt this to suit your taste by adding more or less cilantro, jalapeño etc. If you plan on making this ahead of time, you can combine all the ingredients except for the avocado and cilantro and keep this refrigerated, then add them right before serving. This easily doubles for a large crowd.


Shrimp is low in fat and calories, but tends to be naturally high in sodium so if you are on a restricted sodium diet, you may want to limit your shrimp intake. Moving forward, I will be posting the sodium info on new recipes without the salt as most foods contain sodium. If you use salt be sure to adjust the nutritional info.

  3. This salad is such a lovely & light warm-weather meal! It reminds me of ceviche, but with cooked shrimp. Perfect for the upcoming summer months.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes, very much like a ceviche, and if you buy your shrimp pre-cooked this can be whipped up in minutes!

  5. Yum. I love shrimp and avocado so this sounds like an absolutely fabulous combo and so easy on the points. I have to admit I'm often a sucker for mayo, but I think this recipe could convince me to do without every now and again.

  7. I have a recipe almost identical to this that I make with crab. I get the prepacked imitation crab meat that is usually up at the meat counter.

  8. Avocado and shrimps? Wonderful, just love both. I bet the combination is the bomb! Thank you for such a lovely recipe. You are truly a great cook.

  10. Melissa, that is one of the bonuses to quitting my job, I now have more time to post step by step photos (most of the time!)

    You will all LLLOOVVEEE this :)

  11. Yummy...I'm so excited about this!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Do you think it would taste okay by subsituting grilled chicken for the shrimp? Everything minus the shrimp sounds WONDERFUL in this recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  13. So I'm heartbroken about the fact I am allergic to avocado ( despite LOVING it) any subsitute ideas??

    -Sarah

    ReplyDelete
  14. I bet this would make a wonderful chicken salad, or crab or LOBSTER even!!

    Sarah, I'm sorry to hear that! Leave it out and add a chopped up cucumber! Light and fresh!

    ReplyDelete
  15. My husband will LOVE this, especially if he can convince me to make it with the cilantro and jalepeno - he likes things as spicy as I'm willing to make them.

    ReplyDelete
  16. YUM! I have 4lbs of shrimp in the freezer...

    As soon as I read this I had to make it. It was delicious and my husband, who grew up in Puerto Rico, was extremely happy! Thanks again, Gina, for your awesome recipes!!

    1. Ellie, Cilantro is Coriander in leaf form. Do you have that?

      Delete
    2. Try parsley, instead of cilantro. I like the flat leaf kind, also called Itailian Parsley. It has more flavor than curly.

  20. this looks soooo good, thank you for this recipe...

  21. GINA!!! I am so glad you'll be posting the sodium content!!! My husband is on a low sodium diet, so I have to figure it out anyway on my own (since even when sodium content is included in a recipe it will vary depending on brands used, etc.) But its nice to have a guideline to know if a recipe is particularly high or not.

    I know its extra work for you, and I want you to know that it is appreciated.
    THANK YOU!!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ceviche for us is made with raw fish, but yes this is just like a ceviche with cooked shrimp.

    Elle cilantro I believe is also called coriander. Hope that helps but you could leave it out if it's not available. It will still be wonderful.

    Kassie - I'm glad that helps, so many people ask me for sodium and since I never post exact amounts of salt I didn't know how this would work but then I realized I can post sodium without the addition of salt as a guideline.

  23. I made this last night and it was delicious. I would make again. If you store the leftovers for the next day avocado gets a little mushy but still tastes great!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMG, I can't wait for my avocado-hating husband to go away this weekend so that I can make a batch of this all for myself!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Siobahn- lol!!

    This is really best eaten the same day.

  26. Gina I whipped this up for dinner tonight and my husband and I loved it! It is very much like ceviche! I couldn't find a fresh jalapeno at the store- in a hurry and had a 2 y.o. with me - so I just used canned marinated ones. Still delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe!
    Sarah

  27. Hi Gina--I made this for my father and me. It was AWESOME! I couldn't find fresh jalapeno so I used a jalapeno relish to taste. My father doesn't usually care for spicy food but he really liked this dish (he took a generous second portion as proof). I paired it with a asparagus risotto and we had a delicious dinner! Thanks for the recipe---YUM!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm drooling while waiting to eat this. I made it without the avocado because my husband doesn't like avocado -- I put in fresh corn instead and love the crunch it adds. I also forgot to buy a jalapeno so I had to spice it up with spices.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I made this to go with dinner tonight. We all loved it and my husband couldn't stop talking about it. It's going to be a staple this summer!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I made this with cucumber instead of avocado as I was not planning to serve all at once (avocado gets mushy) and it was delish! Great recipe for the summer and easy-peasy!

    Shrimp + Avocado = Awesome!

  33. I saw this and ran to the store to get the fixings for it. The next morning I threw it together, super easy and quick! I ate it over lettuce and it was fantastic! My son ate some in a wrap later in the day and I took the rest of it over lettuce again for lunch the next day. The avocado was a little mushy but it was still delicious! Will definitely make again!

    ReplyDelete
  34. So delicious! I used red pepper flakes instead of jalapeno, and put it on a bed of shredded lettuce. I would definitely eat this again!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yumm! I just made this for a healthier version of a Cinco de Mayo feast. Will be serving it over tostadas. I don't count WW points, but have made it my goal to make healthier meals for my family out of fresh ingredients. I love your recipes! Thank you!

  36. I made this tonight and served it with corn tortillas. It was excellent! Perfect for a nice hot day.

  37. Served this over crisply toasted bagel thins. Excellent!!

  38. Gina, once again your recipes were a huge hit at our monthly ladies night. We made this, Skinny Taco Dip and the Piña Colada Cupcakes. Sooo perfect! All were delicious and still helped me stay within my daily points. You're the best! Thanks again. Nina

    ReplyDelete
  39. I made this yesterday for Mother's Day along with the Chicken and white bean enchiladas and pina colada cupcakes. Everything was yummy and a hit!

    Although I must confess that I split the cake mix and made half pina colada and half regular (low fat recipe on box) with your cream cheese icing. I hate pineapple and coconut, but my husband and mother-in-law love both and said it was great! Next time I might try a different fruit for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I just made this today for lunch and I will be making this again real soon.. It was so light not heavy but oh so good.. Just full of flavor! It is now one of my favorites ! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I knew this would be a hit, so happy you all enjoyed it! We sure did!

    ReplyDelete
  42. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I had dried cilantro, but forgot to put it in . . . however, I did add the zest from the limes which added another level of flavor!!! So delicious; I will definitely be making this again!! Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. This looks amazing! Would be a great topper on a cabbage salad!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Awesome flavor and so simple to make! Think guacamole with shrimp...yum. For my lunch I had a 1/2 cup of the salad with 10 Baked Tostitos Scoops (slightly less than one serving) which was about 205 calories and quite filling! Thanks for the wonderful, light lunch recipe Gina! Oh, and I didn't have any tomato on hand so I left it out and it still tasted delicious. I am sure it will be even better once my summer tomatoes start producing!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. This was delicious. I forgot to buy limes, so used the juice and zest of one lemon. I will make this again and again. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I loved this!! I will definitely make again!

  47. This salad was delicious! I made it for a family BBQ this week as a healthy side dish. It was so easy, especially with pre-cooked frozen shrimp that just had to thaw under water for a few minutes. Your recipes are so tasty, yet so easy and accessible. I have not encountered a bag one yet. Thanks for sharing them!

  48. Love, love, love, this recipe. Made it twice so far. It reminds me of a Ceviche salad I had at a hotel restaurant in Miami. Very fresh tasting.

    This is a very good recipe. I just made it again for the second time. Starting out it didn't have enough flavor for me. I put in a little bit of Italian dressing and added 1/4 cup of beans and corn, then put it in a corn tortilla. What a great dinner, very filling!!!

    Thanks for the great recipes as always Gina.

    Having lived in Monterrey, Mexico for two summers when I was finishing up college, I developed a taste for ceviche. When I ran across this recipe, I knew I had to give it a try. Fixed it for dinner last night, and it's a keeper! In fact, it's more than just a "keeper." It's absolutely delicious! I know this will become a favorite for years to come. Thanks for the recipe!

  51. Love this recipe!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I just thought you should know that I had ceviche at Bonefish this weekend. And it appears to me that asside from the addition of bay scallops by Bonefish, they pretty much stole your recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  53. lol, either that or they just know how to make a great ceviche :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I altered this recipe to make into shrimp tacos... It was absolutely amazing. The only thing I did differently was leave the shrimp whole and warm them up with some taco seasoning.. then put them in small carb friendly tortillas with the salsa part the same added to the tacos.. It was SO good!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I absolutely love this recipe. Find myself day dreaming about it! Today's email is the Mexican Shrimp Cobb Salad which also looks delish. But it made me think of this one again. Off to the store for shrimp and avocado's! Thanks Gina, love to look at all of your great recipes.

  56. This recipe looks amazing. I'm so happy I stumbled upon your website. The photographs really bring every recipe to life. Thanks for keeping healthy cooking fun!!

  57. I've made this before and I'm planning on taking it to work for a pot luck. I was thinking of adding a can of black beans... yum!

    ReplyDelete
  58. My friend brought this to a girls night and it was the showstopper. We all asked for the recipe and are making it this weekend. She added a can of black beans and we think it took it over the top!!! Love this recipe esp with the black beans!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Instead of the tomato and olive oil, I add in Mango Salsa (bought from Costco). The mango goes really well with the rest of the ingredients and adds a delicious sweetness.

    ReplyDelete
  60. So delicious! Fresh, vibrant salad.

    ReplyDelete
  61. The perfect summer salad. So refreshing! I made this for my parents for brunch last weekend and we finished this off in no time. One note for whomever is chopping up the jalapenos: be sure to wash your hands really well afterwards and avoid touching your face (especially your eyes). I went to wipe my eye after preparing this and boy was my eye on fire! But this salad was totally worth the pain ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I tried this recipe as well and I loved it, it was a BIG hit with family and friends.

    ReplyDelete
  63. This is THE best salad. My spouse loves it. I think I've made this at least 3 times already. We just don't tire of it. My daughter gave me the idea to put it into a WW friendly tortilla and it makes it even yummier. Gina thanks so much for all you do. The WW recipes are the best. You do a terrific job and we appreciate all your efforts.

    ReplyDelete
  64. This recipe is unbelievably fantastic!!! My husband and I just can't get enough of it.

    ReplyDelete
  65. My husband and I decided to use this for sandwich filling so we wanted a little creamier. After mixing it all together, I drained off the extra lime juice and added a dollop of light mayo and a dollop of Kefir's yogurt dressing (Ranch). Worked perfectly. Also there was still enough lime juice that the avocado didn't go brown, even by the next day when we polished off the leftovers at lunch.

    ReplyDelete
  66. We upped the lime juice and cilantro (my favorite 2 flavors in the world), added some chili powder for some extra heat.
    We also slightly cooked the shrimp with low sodium old bay seasoning (I get grossed out by cold shrimp). And then we put this all over some arugula to make it into an actual salad. IT WAS AMAZING!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love this flavor combination! One of my faves!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Wow, this is an amazing recipe! Love the fresh flavors and will make again and again. Thanks Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  69. on my way to the store right now! I am making a couple changes. I am not a fan of onions... and I am thinking mango might add another taste element.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I made this last night and it was so rich and yummy. I pan seared some amberjack and put this on top...I highly recommend this recipe

    ReplyDelete
  71. i made this tonite and it is delicious!! boiled my own shrimp so it took a while. will try again with ready to eat shrimp and compare.

    ReplyDelete
  72. This was DELICIOUS! I roasted the shrimp with a bit of salt and pepper and added some fresh corn to the veggie mixture, which complemented the sweetness of the shrimp. I also left some of the seeds in the jalapenos since we like things spicy. I love the technique of marinating the onions in lime juice! It took away their bite, but still left a fresh onion flavor. I will be making this again and again.

    ReplyDelete
  73. We added the mixture to fresh CORN tortillas right off the stove...amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  74. what does it mean by 7/8 cup?

    ReplyDelete
  75. I made this Saturday for a BBQ. My husband who refuses to eat avocadoes, ate almost all of it. The next morning we had another BBQ, he begged me to go to the store and make this again. I made twice the amount. It disappears quickly!!! Just a tip, I use more tomato and avocado and a little extra olive oil. Also make sure you put enough salt, pepper, and I used garlic powder. AMAZING!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I did not know there were yellow jalapenos???

  117. I wish people would stop posting phrases similar to "it looks great cant wait to try it." It helps no one.

    I added diced and seeded cucumber to this and it was phenomenal. Those who like cucumber should try this out.

  118. Ok, I saw this recipe awhile back and thought, "hey this looks good but I really don't like avocado."

    This weekend, I got an avocado in my Bountiful Basket and I was trying to figure out what the heck to do with it when I remembered seeing this recipe.

    O.M.G. I love this!! I hope to make this again for Mother's Day for my MIL. I think the family would love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I made this without the shrimp and used pickled jalapenos and it is good! I'm going to top my cod with it and put it on a spinach salad. mmmmmmm, it tastes exactly like I expected!

    ReplyDelete
  120. This was delicious! When I made it I added some mango and then plated it on top of some romaine lettuce to make it a little less Ceviche like and a little more salad like.

  122. My family has trouble with citrus. Any alternatives to the lime?

  123. Awesome recipe. I'm pretty much cooking through your whole website these days, and I have not been once disappointed. This salad is delicious! I didn't have jalapeno, so I used some Sriracha to kick it up a bit and it was great. Thanks, once again, for a deliciously healthy recipe!

  125. I love this salad.. I want to serve it at a bridal shower but I need it to be more "single serve" in nature. How would you suggest I serve it??

    ReplyDelete
  126. I made this for fourth of july lunch on the beach. It was terrific. It was easy to adjust to my taste. I even added one more avocado. Because I love avocado. My lime was extra large and it made it very liquify but that was still fine. Thanks again for a terrific recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Hi Gina! Can I just take a moment to say that you have changed my life?! By cooking at home using your recipes, I have saved a ton of money AND lost 34 lbs to date! I usually make all of your recipes exactly like you suggest, but this one reminded me of my favorite dish, shrimp cocktail, from our local Mexican restaurant. I still followed it, but mixed in 3oz of tomato paste, about a teaspoon of Mexican Hot Sauce, 1/2 cup cold water, and one more lime in with the onions after they had marinated for 5 minutes. Then I mixed everything together and ate it with tortilla chips. It was EXACTLY like the restaurant's! It costs $10 for one serving, but yours costs only $3 per serving. By adding the other ingredients, I was able to stretch it to 4 cups. Feeds my whole family for a quarter of the cost of us dinning out! :) THANK YOU GINA! I look and feel so much better than I did 5 months ago, and I have not had to sacrifice my love for food that tastes AMAZING! Xoxo

  132. This is definitely the perfect summer salad. I love salads that serve as a meal and not just a starter.

    ReplyDelete
  133. This salad is AWESOME!!! It's been 100+ degrees in SoCal the last week, so heating up the stove just WASN'T an option. Grabbed precooked, devined tail on shrimp at the store (tails come off super easy!), chopped everything, threw it together and served with chips and homemade salsa. I substituted cucumber for the avocado as my hubby doesn't like it, and the crispy, cool, spicy crunch was HEAVEN. My husband RAVED so much, I'm making it again tonight! We loved eating it off a crispy tortilla chip, and my hubby also put some in a corn tortilla and ate like a shrimp taco (great with some shredded cabbage on top!) With some ice packs and a mini cooler, the leftovers were the high point of his outside-in-the-heat job the next day. BRAVO!!

  134. This is REALLY good. I followed to a T and at 1045 at night sneaking a small bowl of it before bed. I will say, though that my fingers are still burning from cutting the dang pepper up. it's worth it though. lol

  135. I can actually have this! I get excited when I see yummy recipes that I don't have to change anything from in order for our family to eat it (we have a lot of allergies).

  136. What is the meaning of "hass avocado"? I see this in your ingredient list. But I don't know what is that. If I wanna prepare this recipe then how I can prepare if I don't know what is that ingredient?
