I’ve been on a real kick with these summer recipes lately, and its not even really summer yet. But when the sun is out and the temperature rises, I crave cool dishes like this spicy shrimp and avocado cocktail.

I looked through the fridge and happened to find an avocado, tomato, red onion, jalapeno and cilantro. My first thought was guacamole and chips, but then I remembered that I also had some prawns and thought, wouldn’t a cool chunky avocado, shrimp and tomato concoction be yummy? And it was :)
Because it was just Ryan and me and because avocados aren’t particularly good the next day, I decided to make small batch but you could easily double the recipe if you have more people. I think this would make a great addition to a summer dinner party.
