Shrimp + Guacamole Sweet Potato Sliders

This dish is a favorite in our house because it’s easy, flavorful and pretty healthy. It also incorporates ingredients that we usually have laying around: sweet potatoes, frozen shrimp and avocados (plus lime, onion and salt, which we do usually have handy.)

The entire dish takes about 30 minutes to make, and that includes roast time for the sweet potatoes. You can also use an air-fryer or toaster oven to cook the sweet potatoes.

Let’s get right to business! Here’s the recipe for ya.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 large sweet potato (or two small sweet potatoes) sliced lengthwise into 1/4-1/2 inch thick pieces. Should have 6 slices total
  • Olive oil for pan
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion optional
  • 1/4 cup diced tomato optional
  • 2 cloves garlic minced, optional
  • Juice of 1 lime about 1 1/2 tbsp
  • 12-18 shrimp peeled and deveined
  • Cilantro for topping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, toss the sweet potato slices with about 2 tsp of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Toss together until all of the slices are thoroughly combined in the salt and olive oil.
  • On a sheet pan, lay out the sweet potato slices with the largest flat side facing down. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Check on them after 15 minutes, and then flip to roast for another 10 minutes.
  • While the sweet potatoes roast, prepare the guacamole. Scoop the "meat" out of the avocado and place it into a large bowl or mortar and pestle. Mash the avocado until creamy. You can leave chunks or completely mash it out. The texture is up to what you like!
  • Add a pinch of salt (about 1/4 tsp if you want to measure) and lime juice and combine. Taste to make sure you approve of the salt and zest level. If you want more lime or salt, season as you'd like and mix together.
  • Add the onion, tomato and garlic, if using. Mix together and set the bowl aside.
  • Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel and make sure they are dry on both sides. Season with a small pinch or crank of salt and set aside.
  • Season a skillet with olive oil (or an oil of your choice) on medium high heat.
  • Once the oil is shimmering, add as many shrimp that will fit onto the pan. Sear for 1-2 minutes, until the side on the pan is pink and crispy golden brown. Flip the shrimp and sear for another 1-2 minutes until the entire shrimp is cooked through (AKA pink) and both sides are crispy golden brown. Repeat with all of the shrimp.
  • Remove the sweet potatoes from the heat once they are golden brown and tender inside. TIP: If you prick them with a knife, the sweet potato "meat" should be soft and not resist the knife.
  • Plate 2-3 sweet potato slices on a plate. Spread each slice with guacamole and top with seared shrimp. Add cilantro on top of the shrimp, if using. Repeat with the other slices and serve immediately.

    This was so good! The creamy avocado with the shrimp and sweet potato is delicious! I would have never thought of this recipe on my own, but I’m happy she created it! Definitely will make it again.

    GENIUS!! I have also tried this recipe with the tequila lime shrimp and it is out of this world. Highly recommend!!

    This recipe is going to be a go to for a quick lunch or weeknight dinner. A great recipe for a healthy meal that’s still very satisfying! For my variation, I finished the shrimp with a splash of dry white wine for an extra pop of acidity which goes so great with the creamy avocado.

  4. These sweet potato sliders were a game changer! I usually have guacamole on hand, so I love using a sweet potato slice as the base to this delicious dish. I tried it with fried shrimp and topped with spicy honey. So good!!

    I absolutely loved this dish! Avocado is an essential component in at least one of my meals everyday, so I was eager to incorporate the avocado in a new way, that was not in your typical salad or toast. All of the flavors paired really well together, and I honestly think this one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. I’m a huge fan of Skyler and her recipes, and knowing that this is so quick and easy to make, I will definitely be sharing the recipe with my friends and family.

    Love this recipe! Simple and tasty. Avocado and shrimp are my absolute favorite so naturally I gravitated towards this recipe. I was out of sweet potatoes at the time, so I ended up using regular potatoes and it still turned out great! Definitely will be making again! Thanks Skyler for the inspo!

    This dish was such a pleasant surprise! I was a little skeptical all the components would taste good combined, but it completely blew away my expectations! So tasty, so quick, and an added bonus of being healthy!

    Obsessed. I will be making this dish again and again and again! The combination was something I never would have thought of but the roasted sweet potato, avocado and shrimp a paired together perfectly. Absolutely mouth watering. I love how simple it is to make, yet how impressive and delicious it is. I’ve already sent Skyler’s recipe to multiple people.

    Yum!! I made this last night, and my fiance and I both loved it! Definitely went back for seconds and sad it was gone! Simple yet satisfying; will definitely be making this again 🙂

    Honestly feeling like the most gourmet guest the next time I walk into a party (with a mask) with this little appetizer to add to the spread. I tried it with sweet potatoes and regular potatoes and 10/10 would recommend either option!!! So amazing, do yourself a favor and make them immediately.
