1. Heat a pan on high heat and sauté the shrimp in olive oil for 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


1. Slice the avocados and squeeze lime juice on them to prevent from browning.


1. In a small bowl, mix olive oil with the trout caviar.

2. For serving: Divide the avocado on 4 plates. Top with a generous serving black garlic salsa. Add the shrimp and garnish with the trout caviar.

3. Cook’s note: Laughing Bird Shrimp have a sweet flavor. If you can’t find them or prefer to use any other shrimp, go for it. Also, feel free to skip the caviar – it’s not for everyone, or for every day, but it definitely is tasty!
