The Bounty Of Central Florida by Valerie Hart

Yield: 4 Servings

 

INGREDIENTS

    • 1 pound small shrimp
    • 2 large Florida avocados
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice
    · Optional: 2 drops Florida hot sauce
    • 1 tablespoon minced scallion greens

    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
