  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice, or lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound (500 grams) shrimp, no shell and no tails (raw or pre cooked is fine)


  • 4 large ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1/2 a medium red onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup diced grape tomatoes (or cherry or Roma tomatoes)
  • 1-2 large jalapeños stemmed, seeded and finely-diced (adjust the amount to your spice preference)
  • 1/2 red pepper (capsicum) deseeded and chopped (OPTIONAL)


  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, or lime juice
  • 1-2 tablespoon olive oil (OPTIONAL)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro, or parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or more to taste
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Cracked black pepper, to taste


  • Combine shrimp together with the lemon (or lime juice), minced garlic and salt and pepper, to taste.
  • If using raw shrimp: fry in a hot pan until cooked through (about 2-3 minutes per side). Transfer to a salad bowl. 
    If using pre-cooked shrimp: you can do the first step right in the salad bowl. No need to cook them again.
  • Add the avocados, onion, tomatoes, jalapeños and red peppers (if using). Drizzle with the lemon (or lime) juice, olive oil (If using), cilantro (or parsley), salt cumin and pepper. 
  • Toss gently until evenly mixed through. For a creamier guac, continue mixing until reaching your desired consistency. For a mashed guac, feel free to smash the avocado with a fork, until reaching desired texture. (When doing this, we like to leave some avocado chunks in there.)
  • Taste and season with extra salt if needed, or an extra squeeze of lemon juice. Serve immediately with chips or veggie sticks for dipping.
