Grilled Shrimp, Avocado & Cherry Tomatoes with a Red Pepper, Lemon & Lime Vinaigrette
Recipe by Dragon

During the summer months I crave fresh, colourful and brightly flavourful foods. This dish has all that in spades. A quick and refreshing meal that is perfect for a hot summer night dinner. Enjoy!

Serves: 2

1 tablespoon olive oil
20 medium-large shrimp, cleaned & peeled
1 avocado, cut into thick slices
16 multi coloured cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
Salt & pepper to taste

1/2 red pepper, diced small
Juice and zest of one lemon
Juice and zest of one lime
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Salt & pepper to taste

1. Toss the shrimp, tomatoes and avocado in the olive oil, sprinkle with a little salt & pepper.

2. Place the shrimp, tomatoes and avocado slices on a medium heat grill. Grill the shrimp 2-3 minutes per side. The tomatoes and avocado should only be grilled about a 1-2 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp, tomatoes & avocados from the grill and place in a large bowl.

3. Whisk together the diced red pepper, lemon juice & zest, lime juice & zest, olive oil and dijon mustard. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Pour the vinaigrette over the warm shrimp, tomatoes & avocado. Serve warm.
