Blackened Shrimp & Avocado Bites!!

You will be going back for seconds when you try these blackened shrimp and avocado bites! They are easy and quick to make, have a ton of flavor, and a kick of spice! The avocado and shrimp together is a great balance of flavor and the baked corn tortilla gives the perfect crunch! This is one of my favorite appetizers to bring to a party!

Prep time: 8 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes


-2 dozen fresh shrimp (cleaned and deveined)


-1 large tomato - chopped

-Corn tortillas (small rounds or cut into quarters)

-1 1/2- 2 tablespoons of butter

Blackened Seasoning:

-1 1/2 tablespoon of paprika

-1 teaspoon of cayenne powder

-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

-1/2 teaspoon pepper

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-1/2 teaspoon onion powder

-1/4 teaspoon dried basil

-1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

-1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

Next Step:

-Preheat oven to 450 F

-With avocado oil- *lightly (just a mist)* spray your corn tortillas and put on a baking sheet.

-Bake in the oven for 5 minutes and then flip for another 4 1/2 minutes. When they are done and crispy, set aside.

-Combine all of your blackening season into a small bowl and mix to combine.

-Cut the tails off of your shrimp.

-Sprinkle the blackened seasoning all over your shrimp to coat.

-On the stovetop, melt your butter on medium heat and then add your shrimp. Cook until done. This will go quick, usually it is a couple minutes on each side.

-Put together your blackened shrimp and avocado bites!

-On your toasted corn chip add a layer of sliced avocado, then a shrimp, and then sprinkle with tomatoes.


Note: If you use less shrimp you won't need all of the blackened seasoning and you can save it in an air tight container.
