Avocado and Shrimp Tartare with Avocado Ginger Dressing


Avocado, having a rather bland taste, needs condiment to make it come to life. A bit of hot and sour gives it just the right kick. Avocado goes well in salads with shrimps and salmon and I thought of matching it in this recipe with an avocado sauce with ginger. As for any tartare, all the elements should be cut in regular small cubes, all the same size, except for the onion and the coriander, which should be much smaller. This tartare is perfect with a slice of grilled sourdough bread, drizzled with a light Extra Virgin olive oil.
