Omg, you guys.

These are so good.

Melt in your mouth avocado is mixed with creamy, cold shrimp and served in slider form. These mini sandwiches are the perfect appetizer. Served cold, you can make the salad hours ahead of time and then just assemble before your party. Trust me, they’re a huge hit with tipsy people. A huge hit.

Shrimp & Avocado Sliders

Makes about 6 large sliders

6 slider sized rolls (like pretzel rolls or potato rolls)

1 avocado, sliced

1/2 pound cooked shrimp

1/4  cup light mayonnaise of choice

1 teaspoon dried chives (fresh is better- but I never have fresh)

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1 heaping tablespoon chopped basil

1/4 cup finely chopped celery

3 teaspoons lemon juice, or more to taste (start with one teaspoon lemon juice, add until satisfied with taste)

A few dashes hot sauce, if that’s your thing

salt & pepper to taste

1. Chop the shrimp coarsely and mix with all ingredients except avocado.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.

2. When you’re ready to serve, spray your rolls with pam or olive oil spray and lightly toast under broiler until just starting to get golden.

3. While your bread is toasting, slice your avocado.

4. Assemble a few slices avocado on one side of each slider, top with shrimp salad.

Eat & Be happy.
