Pineapple-Shrimp Stuffed Avocados

  • Author: wellness sleuth


  • Ingredients
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
    8 oz. Jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
    2 t. ground cumin
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    ¼ c. fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 2 large avocados
    1 c. fresh pineapple, diced
    1 T. fresh pineapple juice
    1 small red onion, diced
    3 T. fresh cilantro, stems removed and chopped



Heat olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels and add to the hot skillet. Add ground cumin and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Cook shrimp for approximately 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat and add 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice. Stir to combine and transfer to a small bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator to chill.

Cut avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the seed and score the flesh in evenly spaced rows lengthwise and crosswise to create equal-sized chunks. Scoop avocado out of shell and toss with remaining 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to prevent browning. Reserve avocado shells and set them aside.

Add avocado, pineapple, pineapple juice, onion, and cilantro to a large non-reactive bowl and stir gently to combine.

Remove chilled shrimp from the refrigerator and chop into equal-size chunks. Fold shrimp into avocado-pineapple mixture. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Spoon shrimp mixture into reserved avocado shells and serve immediately. Enjoy! 


Pineapple-Shrimp Stuffed Avocados are just good. They're healthy, flavorful, and filling. What's not to love? The sweet pineapple pairs perfectly with the savory shrimp and the creamy avocado ties it all together.
