Chef’s tip: “The measurements that I note in the recipe are merely suggestions,” Stephanie Harris-Uyidi, also known as the “Posh Pescatarian,” says. “If you like cilantro, add more. Not a fan of serrano pepper? Omit it. Be creative.”

  • 1 avocado, diced Lime wedges for serving
  • juice of ½ lime


  1. In a bowl, combine shrimp with sea salt, garlic, a pinch of cilantro, serrano pepper to taste, and lime juice. Let shrimp marinate 15 minutes.
  2. Heat avocado oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and sauté for about 4 minutes. Turn off stove and cover shrimp for 5 minutes. The residual heat will cook shrimp through.
