I loved Agave’s new dish — fried avocado with shrimp ceviche. A smorgasbord of flavors! From smooth avocado, to the tangy and lightly spicy sauce, to savory ceviche. I would love to try to make this at home. — Laura Bellinger, Atlanta
Tim Pinkham, Agave’s managing partner, was, as always, happy to provide this recipe, available for enjoying at the restaurant or for curbside carry out and delivery. The restaurant opened for dine-in service the first week of June.
When making the ceviche, the restaurant seasons the shrimp with their signature chili rub. You can purchase it online or Pinkham says you can substitute Old Bay or your favorite seafood seasoning. And in our photo, the dish is garnished with a roasted red pepper sauce made from pureeing one roasted red pepper with olive oil and seasoning to taste. The sauce is chilled before using.
As always, you can control some of the heat in this dish by keeping or removing the seeds from the fresh peppers. And if you are at all sensitive to the oils in hot peppers, wear gloves when preparing this dish.
