  • 1 lb. Extra-large or Jumbo shrimp tail on and deveined
  • 1 large Garlic clove minced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 1 Lime juiced, for the salad
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 medium Ripe avocados peeled pitted and chopped
  • 1 medium Red onion chopped
  • 1- pint cherry or grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 Jalapeño seeded and chopped, optional
  • 1/2 bunch Fresh cilantro leaf picked and chopped
  • 1 lime juice and zest of, for the shrimp
  • 2 corn on the cob fresh or pre-cooked
  • Wooden skewers soaked in water


  • Place the shrimp into a bowl and sprinkle with the seasonings. Add lime juice, zest, and oil and mix well to evenly coat.
  • Thread about 3 shrimps over each wooden skewer. Heat a grill pan over medium heat.
  • Cook the shrimp skewers for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until shrimp is pink and opaque.
  • Meanwhile, in a salad bowl, add chopped avocado, onion, cherry/grape tomatoes, jalapeño, and cilantro. Stir in the juice of 1 lime, and season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Once the shrimp skewers are done, set aside on a plate.
  • Keeping the grill pan over medium-high heat place the corn over and grill until charred on all sides, flipping it frequently, for about 6-8 minutes in total.
  • Allow the corn to chill until ready to handle, then using a sharp knife, slice the corn from the cob and add it to the avocado salad.
  • Toss the salad to combine one more time, then top with shrimp skewers and serve.


  • Use chicken in place of shrimp. For another seafood, use scallop.
  • No lime? use lemons
  • Vine-riped tomatoes will also work
  • In place of red onions, you may use white sweet onions.
Place leftovers in a container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave when ready to eat. We don't recommend freezing
