Difficulty Level: Easy
Recipe Id: SPA1021

Spicy Shrimp And Avocado Salsa

  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 4 roma tomatoes
  • 6 tomatillos, husks removed
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 small white onion, peeled and quartered (6 oz)
  • 2 jalapenos, stems removed
  • 1 cup loose packed chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup tomato juice
  • 2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 teaspoon maple syrup (real maple)
  • 4 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 avocados, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 lb cooked shrimp, peeled and diced
  • tortilla chips

  1. Remove stems from Bell peppers. Split peppers in half, lengthwise and lightly oil the skin.
  2. In an oven-proof pan, arrange peppers (skin-side up), tomatoes, tomatillos, garlic, onion and Jalapenos.
  3. Broil under high heat 10 to 15 minutes, or until skins of the peppers are charred and the tomatoes and tomatillos are blistered and soft. Allow vegetables to cool.
  4. Peel skin from peppers.
  5. In a food processor, combine broiled vegetables (including any liquid from the pan) with cilantro, tomato juice, salt, maple syrup and lime juice; blend to yield a coarse puree.
  6. Just before serving, add avocado and shrimp and mix well.

Serve with warm fried tortilla chips.
