Avocado and Shrimp Salad

I am back with another Avocado salad. I am trying more and more of it as days are going by. A few months ago when we went to Bassam Beach I ate a dish there called "Avoca avec Crevette " which means "Avocado with Shrimps/Prawns".  The prawns were mixed with a mayo based hot sauce and the mixture was put into the cups of the halved avocado. It looked interesting and I had my idea of making a salad.
I don't know what exactly the recipe was..so I recreated something that found good to my taste buds. Hope you will enjoy too.

The smooth and soft avocado with crispy and buttery shrimps with a hint of sweetness from the sweet corns and a little tartness from the mayonaise and the tabasco sauce, this Avocado With Shrimp salad is bursting with a lot of flavors, each of them uniquely defining itself into the mouth and together creating a taste to stand out. I hope you will love the Avocado with Shrimp salad as much as I loved it from the first day I tasted it.
