    For Puree

    Directions:

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

      This was a good dish, I made it at a friends house and we served it as an appetizer. I cut the shrimp amount in half and made 1/3 of the puree , I used less jalapeno in the puree because no one like their food too spicy hot. We all thought that the avocado flavor barely came through so would probably reduce the amount of sour cream even further. Made for 2014 Culinary Quest

      The flavors were great! I skipped jalapeno, used less sour cream and added some garlic salt to the avocado. DH commented how limey it was, but that could be b/c he was the official lime gadget squeezer! made for Culinary Quest 2014

      Loved how fast, easy and fresh-tasting this recipe was! The cool blandness of the avocado puree was a great juxtaposition to the fresh and tart grilled shrimp.
