Ingredients:  (Serves 2)

1 lb fresh or frozen shrimp

1 semi-ripe avocado

1 can black beans

1/2 fresh lemon (with peel)

1/2 green pepper (aka bell pepper)

1 tsp olive oil

1 level tsp sesame seeds

Touch of salt, pepper, and cumin powder

Optional: crushed chilli flakes and fresh cilantro/coriander leaves.

 

How to:

1. In a small fry pan, heat up 1 tsp of olive oil and toast the sesame seeds until almost brown.

2. Add the shrimp (once thawed and washed), and pan-fry until cooked.

3. Prepare the green/bell pepper by dicing it finely; wash and dice the lemon finely (leaving the peel on); roughly cut the avocado into cubes; and wash and drain the can of black beans.

4.  Place the shrimp and all other ingredients into a large bowl along with a little salt, pepper and a dab of cumin powder. Mix well.

5.  Optional: when serving, you can add some crushed chilli flakes if you like, or a little fresh cilantro/coriander.

 

Recommendations: This is a complete meal, so enjoy with a couple of crackers or saltines if desired.
