Lime Roasted Shrimp Salad

  • 1 firm avocado, peeled and chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped mint leaves
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Add shrimp to the baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast shrimp for 5-7 minutes. Let cool. Meanwhile, chop the cucumber and avocado. Place the cucumber, avocado, minced garlic, chopped mint leaves, and cilantro in a bowl.
