Shrimp on the Barbie


New member
Trying to eat a little healthier...

We decided to have shrimp for dinner. The shrimp was marinaded in Gradassi's garlic EVOO and Plowboys Jerk. While the shrimp got happy, I made an avocado aioli to go with it. Avocado, lime juice, lite mayonnaise (just a 1/4 cup), serrano, jalapeño, cilantro, roasted garlic, and a little salt & pepper. Into the food processor. It took a lot of will power to not just sit and eat this with some chips and another Pacifico!

Cooked up some red onions with garlic EVOO on the MAK Griddle. Half will be used for the shrimp and half will be added to black beans.

Doing the shrimp on the griddle today.

All done.

Crisp up some tortilla's, did both flour and corn ones. These are flour ones.

Time to assemble! Fixings were: tomatoes, onions, avocado aioli, avocado slices, smoked jalapeño cheddar, lime slices, and black beans with onions. Here's Nancy's plate.

And here's mine.

Maybe not exactly diet food, but fairly heathy, and the flavors were awesome!

And yeah, I'm having the leftover avocado aioli with chips today. :D

They make a Pacifo Light ya know.. :cool:

Haven't seen that around here yet. Real beer is my weekend treat. The rest of the time it's Coors light. At ~$8 per 6 pack, the Pacifico lite would have to be really good, compared to Coors light at ~$16 a case. :)

I've only had it in Mexico.. Not sure if they import it or not.

I'm a Miller Lite fan myself. Fat Tire if we are out to dinner somewhere. :cool:

Wow that looks so good Rip! Love the sound of your avacado aioli too. Mmmmmm... :)

Thanks, it's super easy.

1 Hass avocado, halved, pitted, & peeled (or two if smaller varieties)
1/4 cup mayonnaise (lite mayo works great)
1 TBS fresh lime juice
2 medium garlic cloves, peeled (I like to use ones I've roasted on the MAK)
1 Serrano chili, stemmed, halved, and seeded
1 Jalapeño, stemmed, halved, and seeded
2 TBS chopped cilantro leaves
Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper

Scoop avocado pulp into food processor, *add mayo, lime juice, garlic, Serrano, Jalapeno, and cilantro. Process until smooth, add salt & pepper to taste.*
