Avocado and Shrimp au Gratin

Avocado and Shrimp au Gratin

It's very creamy and matches well with wine.

Ingredients: 2 servings

◇ Avocado
― Lemon juice
1/2 teapoon
◇ Shrimp (I used frozen peeled shrimp)
130 g
☆ Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 tablespoon
☆ Mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoon
☆ Soy sauce
1/3 teaspoon
☆ Black pepper
A pinch
◇ Sliced cheese
1 slice
◇ Fresh parsley
As needed


1. Soak the frozen shrimp in water with a little vinegar (not listed) and cook over heat. When the water comes to a boil and the shrimp is cooked thoroughly, drain in a colander.
2. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Scoop out the avocado with a spoon into a bowl. Sprinkle lemon juice and mash roughly with a fork. You will also use the avocado skin, so try not to damage or throw it away.
3. Combine the avocado with the shrimp from Step 1 and all condiments marked with a ☆. Mix well, then pack tightly into the avocado skin.
4. Halve the sliced cheese and lay over the avocados.
5. Bake in the toaster oven for roughly 5 minutes. It'll be ready to eat when the cheese is nicely browned! Scatter on some parsley.
