Gazpacho With Grilled Shrimp and Avocado Recipe (Fish For Friday Recipe)

See More Seafood and Shellfish Recipes Organized by Type of FishHere’s a recipe for Gazpacho With Grilled Shrimp and Avocado from the folks at Life’s Ambrosia that will help you tastefully cool down in this Summer heat.

Gazpacho (also known as gaspacho) is just about the best way I know of to beat the heat while showcasing the flavor of fresh seasonal tomatoes. It’s easy to make, and if you prepare a large batch of it you can keep the extra soup in the refrigerator, insulated container, or thermos so you can steal little tastes of it throughout the hottest part of the day the way people in Spain and Portugal do.

In this twist on the Andalusian favorite, the gazpacho is topped with delicious grilled shrimp and avocado, making this dish a refreshing addition to any cookout, picnic, or BBQ.
