Spicy Shrimp Bowls

This recipe is soooo easy! It only takes a few minutes to prepare and it is delicious. It has a lot of my favorite things: blackened shrimp, black bean and corn salsa and fresh avocado. I have found that alternating between time-consuming recipes and really quick and simple recipes makes my life much easier.

On a seasonal note, I can finally sense the beginnings of spring starting to push its way up from the ground. I noticed some buds on a dogwood tree in my yard and it gave me hope for sunny days and warm weather. Winter is tough a time for me, mentally. Short days and cold nights. I don’t know how those folks in the arctic do it, but my hat is off to them!

Back to the bowls…I have noticed a lot of folks don’t know how to pick out a good avocado. This can be a tricky task when all your avocados are imported. Some days when I am looking for an avocado, I notice they are all too green and hard. Don’t fall into the temptation of picking an avocado in the store that is too green. It just doesn’t ripen properly on your kitchen counter. I always look for those with dark skin that give just a little bit when you give them a light squeeze. Don’t tell anyone I pick up the avocados in the store and put them back!
