Shrimp-Filled Avocadoes

  • 1/4 cup good quality ketchup
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbs each chopped parsley and chives
  • 1 tbs fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp pepper sauce or to taste
  • 1 lb cooked salad shrimp or small shrimp
  • 4 small avocadoes
  • 1/2 small lime
  • Chopped chadon beni (cilantro) for garnishing

    In a small mixing bowl add ketchup, herbs (except chadon beni), lemon or lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, ground coriander and pepper sauce. Add shrimp and let marinate for about 30 minutes. Just before serving, cut avocados in half, remove seeds and rub the cut portion with 1/2 cut lime (a lemon works well here too). This prevents them from changing colour. Taste filling and adjust seasonings. Spoon into avocado halves and sprinkle with chopped cilantro or chadon beni. Serve immediately. Serves six to eight.
