Delicious Mexican spiced and garlic spiced shrimp are the star of this dish, and pair perfectly with creamy guacamole and crunchy cucumber to make a light and easy meal.

The best part? You will only need a few common ingredients and 10 minutes to make these from scratch! Plus they are dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free in case you've got food allergies.

This is a great Whole 30 and keto-approved recipe that will easily serve four as appetizers, or two if served as mains. I’ve used a really simple guacamole here to keep things easy and keep this meal low FODMAP (free free to skip the garlic if needed), however you could also use my favorite Pepita Guacamole or Classic Guacamole. Enjoy!
