Shrimp and Avocado Snacks


Here is a simple and original idea for a festive appetizer: shrimp and guacamole bites in homemade blinis! With their touch of spices and exoticism, these bites will surely please your guests.

Take good-sized shrimp for this recipe, such as the Patagonian shrimp tails of the Escal brand and be careful not to cook them too much to keep their crunch. As for spices, as always, do what you want and have in your closets! You can, for example, replace smoked paprika with curry 🙂
