INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 shrimp
  • 3 lemons
  • 1/2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 frisée, chopped
  • 2 olive oil
  • 3 avocados
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 balsamic vinegar

DIRECTIONS

Boil shrimp in salted water for 2 minutes. Strain, cool, and then take 2 lemons and squeeze them over the shrimp. Let the shrimp sit in the lemon juice for 2-3 hours until the lemon has "cooked" the shrimp a bit more. Dice the shrimp.

Combine the shrimp, tomatoes, frisée, and olive oil in a bowl. Cut each avocado in half, carefully remove the meat, and then dice the avocado, careful to not rip the shell of the avocado. Mix the diced avocado with the other ingredients and then add the mixture back into the avocado shells. Squeeze the remaining lemon on top along with the salt and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

The ingredients list is not displaying properly. I see amounts (1/2, 3 etc) but not designations (lbs, tsp, etc.). Is there a corrected version of this recipe? Thanks.

I'm not seeing the measurements correctly. I see numbers (1/2, 3, 1 etc.) but not the weight or amount designations (lbs, tsp, tbs etc.).
