I made this salad a few years ago with fresh shrimp during a trip to the beach and it has become a summer beach staple. Often, we have it twice during the week that we’re at the beach- It’s that good! Make this salad with fresh-off-the-boat shrimp or make it with defrosted shrimp from the supermarket- The results are spectacular!
-Bring water to a boil in large pot. Boil shrimp for about 2 minutes. Remove from water, rinse.
-Combine onion, cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add shrimp and toss together in large salad bowl.
-Top with sliced mangoes and avocadoes. Add cilantro sprigs as garnish if desired. Serve it up!
