Cooking is a true passion of ours. Whether it’s making our favorite dishes or trying new recipes, we could stay in the kitchen all day. This week, we were craving seafood and decided to try this Spiced Shrimp with Avocado Oil recipe from MyRecipes.com using the fresh shrimp we bought at a local market. Finding a decent shrimp recipe is a rarity, so we were extremely pleased when the shrimp turned out delicious! Using AVOCARE’s Extra Virgin Garlic Avocado Oil in place of regular avocado oil enhanced the flavor in a big way. With a hint of roasted garlic, our oil added in a kick that can’t be beat. Try it out for dinner this week!
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 tablespoons AVOCARE Extra Virgin Garlic Avocado Oil, divided
