Cooking Directions:

  • EASY GUACAMOLE
    • I just mash the avocados with a fork and add lime and a hint of sea salt
    • Put the pit of the avocado in the guacamole to keep it from browning 😉

  • FISH
    • If you have a toaster oven this is the quickest way to cook the fish
    • Pre-heat the toaster overn to 400 degress
    • Place the fish on foil
    • Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle lemon pepper
    • Cook for 15 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork

While the fish is cooking start the process for the shrimp…

  • SHRIMP
    • Peel the shrimp
      • In a non-stick pan, add olive oil
      • Add the shrimp, sprinkle with lemon pepper
    • Thoroughly cook, then set aside

If there’s someone who doesn’t like seafood, you can always use chicken, beef, or shredded pork instead.  I know you’ll love these tacos!

  • You want to cook your shrimp thoroughly but not too much where they are dried out
  • Prepare your salad including tossing it in the dressing

  • For a healthier alternative, you can use a spring mix salad, light dressing, and cut up seasonal fruit like strawberries which goes really well with this dressing —>

  • Place your salad on a plate then scoop up the shrimp and mushrooms on top
  • I like to add slices of avocado on the side 🙂
