🍋 ALWAYS use freshly-squeezed lime juice from an actual fresh lime. Bottled lime juice from the store will give your salsa a strange metallic or overly acidic taste.

Want to get the most juice possible from each of your fresh limes? Of course, we do!

Here’s a quick trick:
On your counter or a cutting board, press and roll the lime back and forth very firmly with your hands.

The rolling loosens and breaks down some of the citrus membranes and makes the outside a little more pliable.

This makes it easier to squeeze which also means you’ll likely get more juice from your squeeze.

Let me know how this works for you!

4 servings


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • handful of fresh cilantro leaves or parsley
  • 4 fresh garlic cloves, pressed
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 large Poblano or Anaheim peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt
  • 1 lb raw shrimp, peeled, deveined, tail removed
  • 2 Tbsps olive oil, divided

Topping suggestions:

  • chopped green onions
  • diced avocado
  • fresh cilantro leaves


Place your ripe avocado, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, peppers, green onions and 1 Tablespoon of oil in a food processor or high speed blender.

Process until finely chopped. Add in the yogurt and continue to pulse until very smooth.

Drizzle a large skillet with remaining oil and cook your shrimp until pink and opaque, about 2 minutes per side, around 3-4 minutes in total.

Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.

Divide your smooth salsa equally into four serving bowls then topped with your cooked shrimp and garnish with chopped green onion, diced avocado, and fresh cilantro.

(Alternately, you can serve the shrimp on the side and use the salsa as a dip to control the amount coating your shrimp.)
