  4. Combine carrot, onion, lemon juice, brown sugar, ginger and cayenne in a small bowl and toss to mix.
  5. Season with salt and additional cayenne, if desired.

  7. Halve avocado, remove pit and scoop the flesh into a small bowl.
  8. Mash, then add the lime juice and salt to taste; stir to combine.
  9. Lay the toast on a plate.
  10. Spread with the mashed avocado, then lightly mound some sprouts over the avocado and sprinkle with the carrot salad.
  11. Arrange the shrimp over the salad.
  12. *Cook the shrimp anyway you like but this is great with hot off the grill (indoor or outdoor) shrimp!

My family gobbled these up! I followed recipe exactly, cooking the shrimp on a Foreman grill. The mixture of tastes is just indescribable. After we finished, my husband mixed the mashed avocado/lime with the carrot/onion and used it as a dip with a piece of leftover toasted bread. He suggested that I make this by itself sometime. We really liked this sandwich & it makes an attractive presentation, too. Thanks, Hey Jude, for another outstanding recipe.
