Directions

For the Shrimp
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the lime juice and zest, cilantro, cumin and oil and whisk well.
  2. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Do not marinate shrimp longer than 5 minutes or the lime juice will begin cooking the shrimp.
  3. Preheat a barbecue or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  4. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper to taste and grill for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until lightly charred and cooked through, making sure not to overcook the shrimp.
  5. Remove the cooked shrimp from the grill and place on a serving platter, with a small serving bowl of the Spicy Hass Avocado Puree. Garnish the shrimp with fresh sprigs of cilantro and serve.
For the Spicy Hass Avocado Puree
  1. Add the avocado, lime juice, sour cream and jalapeño to a blender and puree until smooth, scraping the sides of the blender as needed.
  2. Season puree with salt to taste.
  3. Place in a covered airtight container and refrigerate until serving.
