Avocado Ritz is our family’s favorite Appetizer and I have no idea why after 2 1/2 years of blogging, I have never shared a recipe for this delicious Appetizer.

I usually make this when the main dish takes up a lot of time and needs constant attention.

The Avocado Ritz can be made up to an hour before serving. However, the filling can even be made the day before.

As long as you keep the Shrimp mixture in a sealed container in the refrigerator, the filling will be fine.

I know some people like their Avocado Ritz to be more on the zesty side. And have actually seen restaurants serve extra Lemon Juice on the side.

I am quite happy with the amount of Lemon Juice in this recipe, but if you prefer more zest, go for it !

This same Shrimp filling goes very well served in Lettuce cups.

Seeing as we are all Avocado addicts, I only served it once in a Lettuce cup and immediately received a couple of dirty looks 😉 . Have to admit, I prefer the Avocado as well !

I always keep a bag or two of cooked Shrimp in the freezer, not only for this Avocado Ritz, but also for some Rissoles I like to make. (I get the idea I also do not have a recipe on the blog for the Rissoles!)
