  1. In a non-reactive bowl, marinate the shrimp for 30 minutes in the lemon and grapefruit juice. Season to taste with sea salt. Add the remaining ingredients, mix to combine and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Cut avocados in half, remove pit, and peel. Put into blender. Add broth and puree until smooth. Blend in enough milk to make a thick but pourable soup. Add the lemon juice, salt and Merken to taste. Pour about one half cup soup into each of 8 small cocktail glasses. Top each with 4 shrimp and some of the vegetable mixture. Serve at once.

  • Note: Merken is a unique smoked chili pepper mix originally from the Mapuche Indian population of Chile. As a substitute, combine 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika and 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seeds.

There are two components to this recipe, the shrimp and the soup. The shrimp was fine but nothing out of the ordinary. The soup while creamy from the avocado tasted mostly like chicken broth. I was hoping the merken would add a special touch to the dish but it was lost in the overwhelming chicken taste. I kept adding the merken until I ended up with about 1 tablespoon in the soup. This was a pretty dish but the flavors were simply unremarkable. As the recipe states use good chicken broth as that is what you will be tasting. I found merken at Whole Foods.
