Avocado Shrimp Salsa

This Avocado Shrimp Salsa Recipe is a cross between a pico de galloguacamole and shrimp ceviche. It’s our favorite salsa recipe of all time – such a treat! We have made it at least a hundred times (NO KIDDING!!).

This Avocado Shrimp Salsa recipe similar to ceviche and loaded with avocado, cucumber, tomato and shrimp

It is like a ceviche recipe because it has plump flavorful bites of shrimp, but different since the shrimp are pre-cooked. It has avocado with the perfect amount of creaminess, crunchy cucumber, tomatoes of course and fresh lime juice which pulls it all together.

The FRESH lime juice is key so don’t skip on it. That one ingredient adds enough flavor to the entire salsa where you don’t need any extra salt. Why is this awesome?? Your veggies will stay crisp (salt tends to soften cucumbers and tomatoes). Lime juice also preserves the avocado’s color so this salsa is still just as amazing refrigerated for the next day.


I am convinced that this is the perfect shrimp salsa recipe. Watch the video recipe below to see just how easy it is!

Can I use Raw Shrimp for Ceviche Salsa?

  • Traditional Ceviche is made with raw shrimp that marinates for some time in the lime juice and the lime juice actually ‘cooks’ it from all the acidity.
  • We cooked the raw shrimp before adding it to the recipe, but we have been known to use pre-cooked shrimp to speed up the process. With pre-cooked shrimp – rinse under cold water, pat dry with paper towels then chop.
  • You can even use the small shrimp meat and skip the chopping step altogether! P.S. Click to learn how to peel and devein shrimp.

Skill Level: Easy
Cost to Make: $15-$20 (varies by size of shrimp used)
Calories: 242 kcal
Servings: 6 as an appetizer


  • 1 lb raw shrimp peeled and deveined*
  • 1/4 tsp Salt and black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 medium limes, juiced
  • 2 medium/large avocados
  • 1/2 english cucumber
  • 3 medium or 4 roma tomatoes
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro (1/2 bunch) chopped


  1. Season shrimp lightly with salt and pepper. Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Once the pan is hot, add 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add shrimp in a single layer and cook 3 minutes total, turning once halfway. Saute just until cooked through then remove from the pan. Transfer to cutting board, coarsely chop and place into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Squeeze the juice of 3 medium limes over the shrimp, stir and set aside to marinate while you prepare remaining salsa ingredients.
  3. Dice cucumber, tomato and avocado and add them to the mixing bowl with shrimp.
  4. Finely dice onion and chop 1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro. Add to the mixing bowl then stir together all of the ingredients until well combined and serve. We love this served with hot sauce (such as Tabasco) and tortilla chips.

Recipe Notes

*If using any sized pre-cooked shrimp – rinse under cold water, pat dry with paper towels then chop.
