Low Carb Spicy Shrimp and Avocado Salad

Easy Low Carb Shrimp and Avocado Salad
Serves 4

2 large, ripe avocados

It looks very appetising but I'm afraid avocado is one of the few things that I'm not keen on. I do love shrimps though.

I always struggle in getting the avocado cleanly out of its skin.I will just put the shrimps/prawns on top.

That is a great recipe! Thank you for sharing. I just started my low carb lifestyle after multiple failed attempts. I did a program called 21 day sugar detox that really helped me out.
