Margarita Shrimp on Grilled Avocado Toast

Margarita Shrimp, meets avocado toast. And not any avocado toast, I’m putting my guacamole on top of grilled ciabatta bread, before adding grilled margarita shrimp on top. This recipe has summer written all over it!

My Margarita shrimp on grilled avocado toast recipe is the perfect, get your hands dirty and dig in type of recipe. No forks, or knives needed. What’s that? A shrimp fell off the toast? Better use your hands!

What I like about this recipe, is its all cooked on the grill. Any excuse to get out of the kitchen and be outdoors during the summer, I’ll take!

A quick tip, To get a good grill on your bread, you’ll want to slather it up with some melted butter. It’s will get it all nice and toasted and you’ll get some beautiful char marks on your bread.
