Instructions

⦁ In a bowl mix the mayonnaise with the ketchup, rum and soy sauce. Vigorously mix until our ingredients are well mixed. Cut the lettuce in julienne strips and add to the mix. Also include the diced avocado, lime juice, salt and pepper, the diced shrimp (save 20 whole shrimp to decorate). Mix well and set aside while we empty the limes. limas rellenas
⦁ Cut the limes in half and with the tip of the knife carefully remove the pulp from the peel without breaking it. Empty the limes with a melon baller or spoon, rinse, dry and cut some of the base of the peel so it sits balanced. limas rellenas1
⦁ Fill generously with our shrimp cocktail. Decorate each one with two shrimp, sprinkle with the chopped fennel and a little bit of pink pepper and serve. limas rellenas2

Suggestion:

Freeze the lime pulp to prepare a delicious, refreshing sorbet.
