Spicy shrimp, zesty guacamole and crispy sweet potato come together for a delicious snack or appetizer. The original recipe says to halve the shrimp lengthwise, but the shrimps I used were very small, so I kept them whole. I also swapped out Sriracha sauce for chipotle chilli powder for the shrimp marinade and the flavour came out very tasty. I found this one from my favourite Instagram account for recipes, No Crumbs Left. Thanks Terri!
