Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare Spicy Cabbage Slaw. Add edamame; toss and set aside.

  • Toss avocado with lime juice in a small bowl.

  • Divide the slaw mixture among 4 containers. Top each with 1/4 of the shrimp (about 3 ounces) and 1/4 of the avocado. Cover and refrigerate until ready to eat.


To make ahead: Keep cabbage mixture and dressing for the Spicy Cabbage Slaw separate and wait to combine until ready to eat. If using precooked frozen shrimp, wait to defrost the shrimp until you're ready to eat.

Delicious. I add lime juice and pepper to the shrimp as well. Question: any suggested replacement for the shrimp if limited in amount can eat in a week? Read More
