Spinach Salad w/ Shrimp and Avocado

This salad tastes like the kind of meal you would order in an upscale eatery. Not only is it delicious but is loaded with healthy fat from the avocado. Shrimp as a low calorie protein is grilled or pan fried with a zesty rub. If you have some pickled red onion on hand, adding it will lift the entire salad to a new dimension. Drizzle some balsamic reduction on top and you have created a simple but sophisticated salad that you will never tire of eating.

Seafood Stock
If you try to keep different stocks on hand like I do, then you have to plan ahead of time. Not everyone buys a variety of seafood all at one time, So what I do, is when bring home shrimp or lobster, I then freeze some of the ingredients below all in one Ziploc bag until I have enough to cook the stock.
This is an ongoing process and it does not mean I will always have all of the items below. So don’t feel you can’t make it just because you don’t have everything.
