Easy spicy shrimp wraps with an amazing avocado mayonnaise
I love the flavor of shrimp and avocado together. A while back I wrote about a shrimp taco and avocado salsa that I had made; I loved it so much I decided to find another way to bring these two flavors together again.
I was looking for some kind of spread that I could make with an avocado when I found a recipe for this avocado mayonnaise. You may think that the avocado and mayonnaise may not go very well together or at least that is what I first thought, all I have to say is you have to try it to believe it.
This avocado mayonnaise was amazing with the spicy shrimp and I have visions of using it with chicken sandwiches too and possibly with some fish. Who knows where this may lead to?
