Default Shrimp salad with avocado and edamame

I wanted to find a shrimp and avocado recipe for lunch. Didn't find any here, but Kalyn to the rescue! I found her recipe here, but I modified it significantly (made about 1/2 of her recipe, no olive oil, more edamame and different seasonings) so check hers out for more details.

Shrimp and Avocado Salad with Edamame
(Makes about 2 servings, original recipe created by Kalyn)
  • ~ 6 ounces cooked shrimp (I used 60-80 count size ("medium") frozen uncooked shrimp and boiled them for a few minutes)
  • 1 avocado, ripe but not mushy, diced in pieces about 1/2 inch square
  • 1 cup shelled edamame, cooked if required by package instructions (this is probably double what the recipe called for.)
  • 2 sliced green onions
  • 2 T fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning, or more to taste
Basically I just dumped everything together, and stirred gently to combine. Maybe my avocado was a little too ripe, but it and the lime juice made a "dressing." Serve immediately -- on a bed of lettuce (ww pita for Phase 2?)

Nutrition info on my version, thanks to Sparkpeople (not including Old Bay seasoning, which adds sodium):
