I am writing this morning from Fenwick Beach, Deleware!  The Hubs family wanted to do a beach vacation this year a little closer to where they live in Pittsburgh… so we traveled north this weekend to meet them at the beach.  We’re spending the whole week here and I’m pretty excited for the boys to be at the beach again and with their cousins all week.

This is a recipe I cooked up before I left for the beach… with all things saltwater in mind.  My Shrimp Avocado Lime Salad recipe is packed with healthy baked shrimp, fresh tomato and avocado.  It’s perfect for any day when you are craving a taste of seafood without all the fuss!  In fact, I already ordered the stuff to make it in our beach condo this week.

  1. Use a sheet pan to quickly cook the shrimp. *
  2. Toss the shrimp with the lime, avocado, tomato, and cilantro.
  3. Salt and pepper to taste.
