  • 20 Shrimp peeled, deveined + tails removed (about 1 pound)
  • 2 Teaspoons Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Mild Tasting Oil (Note 1)

Avocado Layer:

  • 1 Avocado (Note 2)
  • 2 Teaspoons Lime - Juice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Yellow Onions chopped


  • 1 Cucumber sliced 1/4" thick
  • Parmesan Crisps broken into small pieces (Note 3)


  • Shrimp. Pat shrimp (20) completely dry using paper towels and place in a large bowl. Sprinkle with cajun seasoning (2 teaspoons) and toss to evenly coat. Heat oil (1 tablespoon) in a large skillet. Once shimmering add the shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the edges are golden and the center is cooked through.
  • Avocado. Meanwhile, mash together the avocado layer ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Assemble. Place cucumber slices (1/4" thick) in a single layer on your serving dish. Cover with a dollop of avocado, then place a piece of shrimp on top. Sprinkle the top with additional cilantro and smashed cheese crisps. Enjoy!


  • Mild Tasting Oil. You want an oil with a high smoke point and mild flavor -- think avocado, vegetable, safflower, sunflower, peanut. Skip EVOO, coconut, or sesame oil.
  • Avocados. Go for haas! They’re higher in fat, creamier, and WAY more delicious than regular.
  • Parmesan crisps add a bit of crunch to this recipe. I like to buy the individual snack packs and break them into small pieces by hitting the closed bag with a rolling pin.
  • Storage tips. These are best served immediately, but if you do have leftovers, place them on a plate covered in paper towels (the cucumbers will release liquid!) and squeeze extra lime juice over the top to prevent the avo from bowning.
  • Nutritional information is for 1 cucumber bite if you make 20 using this recipe and doesn't include the parmesan crisp topping:
