    Shrimp-Stuffed Peruvian Avocados Au Gratin

    This Shrimp-Stuffed Peruvian Avocados Au Gratin is both a gorgeous and delicious appetizer featuring avocado, shrimp, lime juice, and parmesan cheese broiled to golden perfection.


    Ingredients
    8
    large Peruvian avocados, halved and pitted
    *
    juice of 2 limes
    *
    salt and pepper to taste
    1
    tablespoon
    butter
    2
    pounds
    small shrimp, cleaned
    1
    cup
    grated hard cheese, such as Parmesan
    Directions
    Remove most of the flesh of each avocado half with a spoon, leaving 1/2 inch attached to the shell. Place the flesh in a large bowl.
    Mash the avocado with a fork and add the lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
    In a large skillet, heat the butter and sauté the shrimp for 2 minutes. Set a few shrimp aside for garnish and add the rest to the mashed avocado.
    Fill the avocado skins with the shrimp-avocado mixture, sprinkle with grated cheese and heat under the broiler until the cheese turns golden. Garnish with the reserved shrimp and serve.
