Mash some mint leaves into lime juice (you can also use cilantro or parsley if you prefer). Chop some cooked, chilled shrimp and toss with the lime juice. Cut an avocado in half and remove the pit. Fill the hole left by the pit with the shrimp. Now all you need is a spoon.
Tear up some basil leaves and place in a large bowl. Add a bunch of lime juice. Add raw shrimp and mix around. Marinate for 30 minutes. Put shrimp on skewers and grill until just done. Serve on top of your favorite mixed greens.
I haven't tried it but I bet if you stuffed a cornish game hen with shrimp, basil, garlic, and a little lemon, then roasted it, it would be really good. Artichoke or asparagus on the side. Now I really wish shrimp was in the budget.
Just because something has a duck bill doesn't mean it's a platypus. It might just be a duck.
