Let's Make It
Blend water and corn in blender until smooth; pour into large bowl. Add masa harina and milk; stir until mixture forms soft dough. Divide into 6 portions; flatten each to 5-inch round. Cook on large griddle on medium-high heat 12 min. or until both sides are golden brown, turning occasionally.
Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add peppers and garlic; cook and stir 1 min. Stir in shrimp; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until shrimp turn pink. Add tomatoes, cilantro and lime juice; mix lightly. Remove from heat.
Split arepas; fill with cheese, shrimp mixture and avocados.
The size of a shrimp is indicated by the count or number of shrimp per pound. The smaller the number, the larger the shrimp. Shrimp size terminology varies from place to place, so the count is the most accurate way to call for shrimp in a recipe. A basic guideline is: 11 to 15 is jumbo; 16 to 20 is extra large; 21 to 30 is large; 31 to 35 is medium and 36 to 45 is small.
How to Devein Raw Shrimp
To devein raw shrimp, first remove the outer shell. Then make a lengthwise shallow cut on the outer curve of the shrimp to expose the black vein. Loosen the vein with the tip of a sharp knife, then pull with your fingers to remove.
