Simple Shrimp and Avocado Toast

Avocado toast lovers, trust us: You haven’t lived until you’ve tasted seafood avocado toast! Whole-grain bread and cumin-laced avocado provide the creamy-crunchy foundation you know and love. But it’s the quick-cooking shrimp, sautéed with lime and just the right amount of spice, that makes an amazing thing even better!

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  • ½ lime, juiced, divided
  • ½ pound medium shrimp, deveined
  • ½ large avocado
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 slices 100% whole grain or whole grain gluten-free bread
  • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced
  • Dash of coarse sea or kosher salt
  • Hot sauce (optional)


  1. Heat oil in skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic, paprika, ½ teaspoon black pepper and half of lime juice; cook for 1 minute and then increase heat to medium-high. Add shrimp to skillet in a single layer. Sauté until golden (about 2 to 3 minutes), then flip and cook on other side for 2 more minutes, until shrimp is cooked through.
  2. While shrimp is cooking, mash avocado in a bowl with cumin and remaining lime juice and black pepper until it reaches desired consistency.
  3. Lightly toast or broil bread. Top with mashed avocado, sauteed shrimp and red onion slices, and sprinkle lightly with a little salt. Drizzle with hot sauce, if desired.
