I love shrimp - it's practically its own food group in our house. Just the other day - my husband called me on my way home from work and told me to just bring home shrimp because that's what he wanted for dinner. Um - ok - shrimp you will have!
The thing is though - I'm a dipper! I like to dip everything in ranch - but sometimes I want to be a little fancier - so I tried my hand at making a Zingy Avocado Aioli to dip my shrimp in! Plus - it's perfect for holiday entertaining! Suddenly a shrimp appetizer becomes super fancy when served with Avocado Aioli!I got my KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP when I was at Walmart. I'm pretty obsessed with their Savings Catcher app and have saved over $23 in less than 2 months! I'm going to pile it up until I have enough on a gift card to pay for my groceries one week!
I love using raw shrimp rather than cooked shrimp. It cooks up in just a couple of minutes and has a better flavor. I dropped a tablespoon of butter in a hot skillet and then added the shrimp. Cracked a little salt & pepper on top and we're good to go!
Freshly sauteed shrimp - good enough to devour right then & there! But wait - I have a zingy aioli to make!!!
The ingredients are simple - probably things you already have in your fridge. I got some horseradish from home for Christmas and have been looking for an excuse to use it! Horseradish is one of those things that can be a little scary - but in small doses it adds SO much flavor! It's a perfect complement to the KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP.
Throw it all in bowl and mix it together. I used one of those hand-held stick mixers. I don't have a big fancy food processor. It was nice and creamy but you could still see little pieces of avocado. I'm already hungry!
I encourage you to taste as you're mixing up your aioli. I had it all together, took a taste and found it needed something else - so I threw in some taco sauce (not salsa) and a little more horseradish - perfection! Make it how YOU like it!
Zingy Avocado Aioli

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic or 1 clove
