I was looking for a menu for one of my client that is diabetic and hypertensive. I first made a list of all possible ingredients I can use for that particular week and at the end, I had a few left including, zucchini, avocado and shrimp. The dilemma now was how to put those three together while keeping a nice visual. Make appetizers with them and use the hard surface of the zucchini as a base. BINGO!!!!! For the initial recipe that I shared with my client, I did use natural spice but NO SALT. Here, I am using my powder seasoning  but you can make it without salt.

Those finger bites are so delicious and crunchy at the same time. It will be a good fit to impress friends and family. I am planning to use them for my next catering event. For those who do no like zucchini, cucumber can be used as a replacement.

It is important to use Fresh shrimp instead of the frozen or precooked or they will shrink rapidly. Thanks!
