So fresh and wonderful: this avocado shrimp salad is always a crowd pleaser. I'm quite a fan of shrimp, but if you prefer, you can substitute cooked chicken breast, thinly sliced steak, or sliced hard-boiled eggs to add a little protein and serve as a cob salad.

Cook's Tip: Freshly cooked corn really makes this salad and adds an incredible blast of sweet flavor. When fresh corn is out of season, cook up some frozen corn as it is usually sealed at the peak of freshness.

How to make shrimp and avocado salad:
Dry the shrimp with paper towels and place them in a medium bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of Cajun spices, 2 pressed garlic cloves, a pinch of salt and stir to combine.
Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of butter and once it is melted and hot, add the shrimp in a single layer. Sauté 2 minutes per side or just until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Chop, rinse and centrifuge 1 medium head of romaine lettuce. You should end up with about 6 cups of lettuce. Transfer that to a large mixing bowl. Now add 3 sliced tomatoes, thinly sliced red onion, sliced cucumbers, 2 sliced avocados, and 1 cup cooked corn.
To make the dressing, start with 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, now finely chop about 1/2 cup of coriander and stir. Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and the extra virgin has the best flavor. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt and a generous pinch of black pepper and stir.
