Make this Shrimp and Avocado Appetizer using canned tiny shrimp. But you can probably make it with cooked fresh shrimp, that has been chopped but I have never tried that.  It’s just too easy to open one of those little cans and the shrimp is delicious.   And they could also be served with the avocado chopped up and gently mixed with the shrimp salad and served topped on a bed of lettuce.  My youngest daughter just loves these Shrimp and Avocado appetizers, in fact, she says they taste like a little piece of heaven.
