Shrimp, Avocado, and Grapefruit Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 teaspoon chopped shallots
  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce 
  • peeled avocado, cut into 12 wedges 

Preparation

  1. 1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle shrimp with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Add shrimp to pan; cook 3 minutes or until shrimp are done, stirring frequently. Remove from pan; keep warm.

 This is an absolutely delicious salad, but even where I live in Florida where shrimp, avocado and grapefruit are plentiful...there is no way that this is a budget friendly meal. I couldn't buy these ingredients for $2.48 per serving.

Yum! I don't personally think it would be too hard to make this for the price listed. I can get shrimp here 1 pound (maybe a bit more) for $5 and avacodos are only 98 cents a lot of the time. I will probably try this soon :)
