Loaded Avocado Shrimp Salsa Recipe – Natasha’s Kitchen

– Hey, it’s Natasha of NatashasKitchen.com and this is our favorite
salsa of all time. It’s loaded with shrimp, avocado, and one surprising ingredient. We’ll start with one pound of
peeled and deveined shrimp. Lightly season that with salt and pepper. Place a large skillet
over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of oil. Once that’s hot, add the
shrimp in a single layer and saute for about three minutes total or just until cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the
pan so they don’t overcook. Then coarsely chop them up and transfer to a large mixing bowl. (upbeat music) Squeeze the juice of three medium limes right over your shrimp. Be sure to use fresh lime
juice because it makes all the difference. Give that a stir and let
the shrimp sit and marinate while you chop the rest
of your ingredients. Dice half of an english cucumber, and I’m using garden cucumbers here, and add them to the mixing bowl. (upbeat music) Now dice three to four
medium-firm tomatoes and add them to the mixing bowl. (upbeat music) Now peel, pit, and dice
two large avocados. You can use medium avocados
but I prefer the large ones. And add them right to the mixing bowl. There is no such thing
as too much avocado. (upbeat music) You can’t have a salsa
without onion so finely dice one small onion and add it to the bowl. (upbeat music) Onion pretty much always makes
me cry but it is so worth it. Last but not least, chop and add half a
bunch of fresh cilantro. I am so excited right now because all that’s left to do is stir. Make sure everything is
coated in that super yummy fresh lime juice ’cause
that’s where the flavor’s at in this salsa. To be honest, I’m desperate for it because this is my very
favorite salsa of all time. My husband and I eat this all the time. The avocado makes it a little bit creamy and it smells so good. I love that the cucumber
kind of bulks it up and it tastes really
good, adds a nice crunch. Are you guys looking at this? (laughs) I know you wanna dunk a chip in here. Okay, that’s what I’m gonna do right now. (upbeat music) Oh. Dunh dunh dunh. Here we go. Mmm. That’s so good. (laughs) The lime juice gives it
such a fresh pop of flavor. It’s also really good with hot sauce. So if you want to serve it with hot sauce, if you like a little heat, I would suggest that, that’s what we do. I hope you guys love this recipe. I know you will because
we’re totally crazy about it and how can you not? Shrimp, creamy avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers. Everything about is good. (laughs) If you enjoyed this video, give me a great big thumbs up below. Make sure to subscribe
