Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time20 mins
- ¼ Cup Fresh lime juice about 2-3 large limes + additional for drizzling
- 1 ½ Tbsp Honey
- 2 ½ Tbsp Olive oil
- 2 ½ Tbsp Jalapeno minced (about 1 jalapeno)
- Pinch of salt/Pepper
- 1 Lb Shrimp peeled and de-veined.
- ½ Cup Avocado mashed (about 1 small avocado or 120g)
- ¼ Cup Plain Non-fat Greek yogurt
- 2 Tbsp Garlic minced
- 2 tsp Fresh lime juice
- ½ Cup Cilantro roughly chopped
- Salt/pepper to taste
In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients up to the shrimp. Stir until evenly mixed. Add in the shrimp and toss until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the shrimp marinate.
Preheat your grill to medium/high heat and lightly spray it with cooking spray.
Skewer the shrimp (remember to soak the skewers for at least an hour if using bamboo!) so that there are 4-5 shrimp per skewer.
Place the skewers on the grill and cook until lightly charred and opaque, about 1.5-2 minutes. Flip and repeat until cooked. Cover to keep warm while you make the dip.
In a small food processor (mine is 3 cups) combine all the ingredients and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Squeeze lime juice over the shrimp and serve with the dip.
