Avocado Salsa:

Directions

Combine bread crumbs, crushed tortilla chips, paprika, garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne, and thyme in a shallow dish or bowl. Place flour in another shallow dish or bowl and eggs in a third. Dredge shrimp, 1 at a time, in the flour, then eggs, and then the bread crumb mixture.

Heat canola oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, gently add shrimp and cook until golden brown, turning once, about 1 minute per side. Serve immediately with Avocado Salsa.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add jalapenos and serranos and fry over medium heat until tender. Drain and let cool slightly. Add fried peppers to a food processor or blender, along with the avocados and garlic. Blend until smooth. Add cilantro, lime juice, chicken stock, onion powder, and salt and pepper, to taste. Blend until smooth. Serve with Santa Rita Shrimp.
