I found this recipe in a magazine many summers ago and I changed it up to suit my family's taste. The shrimp are served chilled and are so nice on a hot day when you want something cool and easy. The Creamy Buttermilk-Avocado Sauce is so good and it accents the shrimp beautifully! Blessings, Enjoy !

Step-by-Step

  1. Bring 2 quarts of water to boil. Add shrimp and cook 3 to 4 min. or until they just turn pink . If using frozen shrimp, just thaw under warm water and boil about 30 sec. ( I use the frozen, pre cooked shrimp).

  3. Fill a medium bowl with ice. Place small bowl of shrimp on the ice. cover and chill 1 hr. to 24 hrs.

  5. THE SAUCE
  6. In a food processor or blender Process avocado, parsley, onion and lemon juice 30 seconds or till smooth.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
