This gazpacho is a refreshing and spicy blend of shrimp, avocado, tomatoes, cilantro and lime! Crab meat or lobster could be substituted for the shrimp. Don’t substitute dried cilantro for fresh as the flavor will be entirely different. Serve with Chile Lime Garlic Shrimp to make an unforgettable shrimp cocktail.

This is my version of a recipe that originally appeared in Mary Land’s Louisiana Cookery (1954). I have spiced it up a bit. Okay, more than a bit, and added a few other spices. This sauce is served with grilled seafood and chicken, but if you wanted to sneak it onto some steamed shrimp or crawdads, I wouldn’t turn you in to the food police. It will keep in the refrigerator for a week and freezes nicely.
This sauce is thought to be of Tunisian origin, but is found throughout all of North Africa and the Middle East under various names and spellings. It is used to flavor couscous and grilled dishes such as brochettes, and also as a relish with salads. Cover this sauce with a thin film of olive oil and it will keep up to a couple of months in the refrigerator.
