You simply “blacken” the shrimp by seasoning them with creole seasoning and searing them in a cast iron pan over high heat so that they cook in no time, getting a nice light blackened sear on the edges while still being succulent on the inside! The spicy shrimp is then served on top of crispy and cool cucumber slices along with a creamy avocado sauce that is the perfect combo of flavours, textures and temperature!

The homemade cajun spice sears on to the shrimp giving it an amazing spicy kick. If you prefer a milder appetizer, you can easily cut the paprika and cayenne in half.

I like to serve these shrimp in a tasty remoulade sauce to kick things up a bit more, but it’s completely optional. Whether you are serving these blackened shrimp avocado cucumber bites at your football playoff party, for some other sports event or for entertaining guests or even (I’ll admit it) as a light meal, they are sure to please!
