Shake it up - your snazziest, tastiest shrimp salad?

linguafood | Feb 20, 2011 01:13 PM

I have a wonderful, perfectly ripe avocado waiting to be stuffed with deliciousness - namely, shrimp salad.

Now, the way I usually make shrimp salad is by combining the poached shrimp (chopped up or at least cut into smaller pieces) with some mayo, lemon juice, paprika, some herb depending on what I have on hand, s&p. That's it. Sometimes, when I feel like some heat, I'll add sriracha. Tasty, sure... but nothing really exciting.

I'd love to hear how you hounds like to jazz up your shrimp salad - without totally covering up the shrimp flavor. I'm open to non-mayo salads, too, tho creaminess would be good.

I am more interested in flavorings than ingredients - I don't want to add diced peppers, or celery, or the like (if that makes any sense).
