Shrimp Avocado Boats

This recipe was developed for Stubb’s by Joe, of MMMGOBLUBBQ.
  • 7



  • 8 Whole Avocado's
  • Olive Oil
  • Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub
  • Stubb's® Spicy Bar-B-Q Sauce
  • 1 pound Shrimp (Peeled and Deveined)
  • 16 ounce Colby Jack Cheese
  • 8 pieces of bacon. (Cooked crispy and chopped into bacon bits)


  • Set up grill for medium, direct heat.

  • Slice avocados in half and remove the pit. Make a few deep cuts inside the avocado, but not thru the skin.

  • Lightly coat the inside of the avocado with olive oil and sprinkle with Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub. Do the exact same with your shrimp.

  • Grill shrimp for about 2 minutes a side. Coat with Stubb’s Spicy Bar-B-Q sauce and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from grill and chop into pieces. Set aside.

  • Grill avocado's on medium heat, flat side down. Grill for about 5 minutes or until you have a nice char on the inside of the avocado.

  • Once the avocado's are charred, flip over and fill with shrimp and cheese. Cook covered for approximately 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

  • Add crispy bacon to melted cheese. The melted cheese helps hold the bacon in place. If you have any extra shrimp, add on top. Remove from grill and serve.
