  • 1 pound medium-small shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed
  • 3 scallions, white parts chopped and green parts cut into strips
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon, plus lemon wedges for serving
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce


Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 2 teaspoons oil for cooking with high-heat, such as canola, grapeseed or rice bran and heat until shimmering. Add the shrimp in a single layer and cook until they turn white halfway through, about 4 minutes. Turn the shrimp and sprinkle in the white parts of the scallions and the lemon zest; cook until the shrimp is done, about 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low and gently stir in the avocado and soy sauce. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and serve with additional lemon wedges.
