Shrimp With Avocado In Tequila Cream Sauce And Jicama Slaw. New Music From Getaway Dogs.

Succulent shrimp and creamy avocado have never been more divine than when tossed together in a slightly spicy and creamy tequila laced sauce. The crunchy, light slaw is the perfect side.

Shrimp With Avocado In Tequila Cream Sauce


2 tablespoons canola oil
1 pound shrimp shelled and deveined
1/3 cup tequila
1 tablespoon butter
1 (1.6-ounce) packet garlic and herb sauce mix
1 canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce, chopped
1 1/4 cups milk
1 avocado peeled, pitted, and chopped
Jicama Slaw (recipe follows)


1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté shrimp for 3 to 4 minutes, or until opaque. Remove from skillet and set aside.

2. Add tequila to skillet. Bring to a boil and cook about 1 minute, which will cook off alcohol. Stir in butter then add sauce mix, chipotle chile, and milk. Cook, stirring, until sauce thickens and is heated through.

3. Remove sauce from heat and stir in cooked shrimp and avocado. Serve with Jicama Slaw.

I was excited when I saw that Getaway Dogs have a new single out. I loved what I heard when I featured them in this post. Plus, I have just seen the movie ‘US’ twice this past week so Santa Cruz, where the band is based, has new meaning for me.

Get ready for this lovely, lilting tune by Getaway Dogs.

“Only in retrospect
can I know if it was worth it
Will I regret
so by that logic
I’ll take my chances”

Check out Getaway Dogs on the band’s Website. You can buy their music on Bandcamp.
