  1. Soak 8 wooden skewers in water to prepare them for the grill.
  2. Toss shrimp, garlic, oil, and lime juice in a large baking dish. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high. Thread 3 shrimp and 2 slices of chorizo onto each skewer, alternating pieces. Season with salt.
  4. Grill until shrimp are opaque and chorizo is slightly softened, about 3 minutes per side.
  5. Arrange avocados on a platter. Squeeze lime wedges over avocados and season with salt and pepper. Serve with shrimp and chorizo skewers.
