  • Prep Time 5 min
  • Total Time 15 min
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 limes, divided (one to juice, one for grilling)
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 3/4 cup chicken, fish or vegetable stock 175 mL
  • 2 tbsp sour cream 30 mL
  • 1/2 tsp sugar 2 mL
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin 1 mL
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper 0.5 mL
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper, divided
  • 24 raw large black tiger shrimp, peeled, tail on
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Place 1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice, avocado, stock, sour cream, sugar, cumin and cayenne in food processor or blender and pulse until smooth; season with ¼ tsp each salt and pepper. Transfer to a small saucepan. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a bowl, toss shrimp with olive oil and season with remaining salt and pepper. Grill shrimp on medium-high heat, 1 to 2 min. per side, or until just cooked through. Cut lime into thick wedges and grill to lightly mark.

  • Step 3

    Bring reserved avocado sauce to a simmer over medium-low heat. (Set saucepan on barbecue stove burner, if available. Otherwise, use a stove burner.) Divide shrimp evenly among 4 plates, and serve with the warm sauce and grilled lime wedges.
