When it comes to shrimp and summertime, I am all about firing up the grill. I like to marinate the shrimp in a little olive oil, cilantro, and a mixture of seasonings.
Toss them on the grill and get a nice sear. When I grill shrimp I actually like to use two skewers to hold them in place. It makes it easier to flip and control the shrimp when grilling.
Once the shrimp come off the grill, you can leave them whole and set them aside or dice them up and toss them in a bowl full of avocado, peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, and lime juices.
You can eat this Grilled Shrimp and Avocado Salad in a few ways! This week, I cut out low-carb tortillas into rounds, popped them into a muffin tin, and threw it on the grill to get smoky and crispy.
Additionally, I sometimes like to use keto tortilla chips or pita chips to serve. Better yet, place it in a lettuce cup or stuff it in a dash of sweet pepper. Let me know how you like to eat your Grilled Shrimp & Avocado Salad by leaving a comment below or by tagging me on Instagram @bonappeteach.

Dice the shrimp or leave them whole (I leave mine whole when I make the "tortilla cups or lettuce cups" but like to dice them if I serve with a low carb tortilla chip (kind of like a salsa).
