Sweet onions lend a nice punch without the sharp, biting taste of most other onions (which means they wont overpower when sliced really thin and tossed in a salad like this one). Look for Walla Walla and Vidalia at the grocery store.


1 - lime
1/2 - teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 - teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 - tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
1 - pound uncooked large shrimp in shells, peeled and deveined
2 - avocados, halved, seeded, peeled, and sliced
1 - large tomato, cut into chunks
1/2 - sweet onion (Walla Wall or Vidalia), thinly sliced (1 cup)
1/2 - cup packed fresh cilantro


For Lime Dressing, remove 1 tsp. zest from lime; juice to get 3 tablespoons In a small bowl combine zest, juice, cayenne, and 1/4 teaspoon of the kosher salt. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until combined.

In a medium bowl toss shrimp with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Thread shrimp onto skewers. Grill shrimp on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes or until opaque, turning once halfway through grilling.
On a large platter arrange shrimp, avocados, tomato, and onion. Drizzle with dressing and top with cilantro.
