Which Photo of Shrimp Stuffed Avocado

Which photo of Shrimp Stuffed Avocado do you like best? The one with the whole shrimp or the cut up one?

The cut up one is easier to eat but I like the photo with the whole shrimp.

I like the whole shrimp best too. Both look fantastic, BTW.

Hey, I'll take either one! One needs a fork but the other one doesn't. I guess the picture with the whole shrimp tells the story better.

For photographic purposes, the pic with the whole shrimp is the clear winner. If the dish was served to me, I'd rather have the cut up shrimp.

The whole shrimp is more appealing, but it also suggests you eat the shrimp separate from the avocado. The cut up is attractive too AND gives you the idea you should scoop up some avocado with eat bite of shrimp.

I agree I love the photo of the whole shrimp. But the dish is about eating both at the same time. I think I will use the one of the cut up shrimp.

More importantly, how did you prepare the shrimp? My mouth is watering.

Mostly Cajun Seasoning, white pepper, garlic powder and cumin. Tossed the shrimp in that then seared in a hot pan.
