Avocado Toast with Shrimp

I realize the name of this recipe isn’t exactly conventional but who cares? The recipe is not conventional and you know what? neither am I. Some other names in the running were “Cracked Out Avocado Toast” and “Jacked Up Avocado Toast” but I landed on “Roided Out” because I imagined a little scenario in my head that went like this: Normal, average piece of avocado toast is at the gym doing it’s normal, boring workout and in walks this roided out avocado toast and intimidates the heck out of everyone and makes everyone want to be just like him. Picture it real quick. Okay, anyway, This toast is piled high with deliciousness and I swear, you’ll thank me after you slam one of these babies in your face. And no, they do not actually contain steroids.

You might be thinking this combo of flavors seems weird but you’d be wrong. As luck would have it, I hold the official position as the “decider of what’s weird and what’s not” and this falls under the category of not. I, as a human, however, might fall under the former category but that’s still under consideration. Anyway, back to the toast. It’s salty, sweet, spicy, crunchy, smooth, all the things. The crunch comes from the cabbage and jicama slaw. We’re actually using this recipe and just adding some jicama and basil to it to sweeten it up a bit. Measurements aren’t too important for this recipe because you’re just piling as much stuff onto the toast as you want. If you want more shrimp, add more. If you want it extra spicy, pile on those jalapeños. For example, the recipe calls for 18-24 shrimp and that’s depending on if you want 3 or 4 shrimp on each piece of toast but, of course, you can feel free to add as many as you want!
