  • 1 lb. pre-cooked frozen shrimp, thawed and
    Chopped (keep 4 shrimp whole)

  • 1 pitted avocado, diced
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper

DIRECTIONS

2. Add your corn, yogurt, milk, lime juice, cayenne, and coriander to a blender and puree. Make sure that there are no corn kernels left whole, and strain using a sieve into a large bowl, extracting as much liquid as you can and getting rid of the solids. Repeat step with your second batch of ingredients. 

3. Stir in chopped shrimp, season with salt and pepper to taste. If it’s too sweet, you can add some cumin as well.

4. Serve in a small bowl. Garnish with cherry tomatoes and a whole shrimp per bowl.
