Spicy shrimp salad with avocado

In the late 90s, when the unprecedented avocado fruit first appeared in our stores, the avocado salad with shrimps became very popular. This salad, made up of shrimp, avocado, and sometimes eggs, was served in avocado halves. We decided to change the recipe for this salad, taking into account current trends.
