The Dressing:


  • Cut each cucumber in half crosswise, then lengthwise, so that there are 8 pieces in all. Using a small spoon, scoop out the seeds and some of the flesh to form boats.
  • Place the shrimp in a bowl. Add the olive oil, salt and pepper, and toss to coat the shrimp.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Cook until the shrimp is just cooked through, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the shrimp to a bowl, and stir in the red bell pepper and avocado. Toss with 3 tablespoons of the dressing.
  • Brush the insides of the cucumber boats with the remaining 1 tablespoon of dressing.
  • Divide the shrimp mixture evenly between the cucumber boats. Serve.

The Dressing:

  • Whisk together the orange juice, olive oil cumin, salt and pepper.
