Shrimp Brochettes with Avocado-Cilantro Salad

  • SERVINGS: 10
  • FAST
  1. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  2. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  3. Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. 4 Hass avocados
  5. 1 1/2 pounds tomatoes—peeled, seeded and diced
  6. 1 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  7. 10 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  1. In a large bowl, whisk the lemon juice with 1/4 cup of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Halve and pit the avocados, and cut them into 1/4-inch dice. Add to the bowl and toss with the dressing. Fold in the tomatoes and cilantro. Refrigerate the salad until chilled.
  2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Thread each shrimp lengthwise onto a skewer to keep it straight. Brush the shrimp skewers with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper. Grill the shrimp over moderately high heat until cooked, about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Spoon the avocado salad onto 10 salad plates. Top each salad with a warm grilled shrimp and serve at once.

Suggested Pairing

The fruit and acidity of a rosé will highlight the dried fruit and sweet spices in the main dishes.
