Ingredients2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced short wise 1 cucumber, peeled, seeds removed and cut into matchsticks, 2” long x ¼” wide 1 romaine lettuce, washed, dried and torn into 3" x 3" pieces 1 bunch fresh cilantro, washed, dried and leaves torn or chopped 1 lime, zested and juiced (in separate containers) 1 spring roll wrappers, round 1 lb. shrimp, raw, large, deveined (peeled or unpeeled) As needed sriracha, to taste (1-3 Tbsp.) 1 clove garlic, large, grated 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, plus 1 Tbsp. for cooking if needed
- Toss the shrimp in the sriracha, lime zest, garlic and extra virgin olive oil in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate while preparing the vegetables.
- Prepare the vegetables as described and chill while cooking the shrimp.
- Cook the shrimp outdoors in a grill pan, or on skewers with 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (if needed) over a med/hi fire, or if cooking indoors, in a large skillet with 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (if needed) over med/hi heat until the shrimp become pink, opaque and just cooked through- about 3-5 minutes.

Place 4 thin slices of California Avocados down the middle of the wrapper. Top with 1-2 pieces of lettuce, 5-10 cucumber matchsticks and 3 shrimp. Finish with a sprinkling of cilantro and plenty of lime juice. Wrap tightly, as you would a burrito or egg roll. -Enjoy as a light and flavorful summer treat!
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
