 24 medium shrimp, cooked, tail on
 ½ cup canola or olive oil
 ¼ cup white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar
 ¼ cup finely chopped shallot
 2 Tbsp Dijon-style mustard
 2 Tbsp chopped parsley
 ¼ tsp sea salt
 freshly ground pepper, to taste
 1 avocado, peeled, diced
 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
 4 small lemon wedges, for garnish

In a bowl, mix together oil, vinegar, shallot, mustard, parsley, salt and pepper. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 30 minute, or up to 24 hours.


When ready to serve, divide avocado and tomatoes among 4 cocktail glasses or small serving bowls. Top with 6 shrimp each and 2 Tbsp vinaigrette each. Garnish with lemon wedges.
