SHRIMP & CHORIZO KEBABS W/ BASIL & AVOCADO DIP (by France)

SHRIMP & CHORIZO KEBABS W/ BASIL & AVOCADO DIP (by France)

Shrimp Chorizo Basil FB.jpeg

This week, I made a flavor-led dish with three of my favorite ingredients: shrimps, chorizo sausage* and avocados. The shrimps are dipped into a homemade spice mix before going into the oven and the avocado dip is mixed with basil and mint which makes is super fresh. This shrimp/chorizo/avocado-mint-basil dip combo is to die for - try it and let us know what you think of it! Bon appetit!  *Note: If you want a lighter dish, make it without the chorizo! It's just as delicious.
