24 jumbo shrimp (about 2 pounds), peeled and deveined, tails intact
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus 1 lime, cut into wedges
8 ounces dried chorizo, cut on the bias into sixteen 1-inch pieces
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 firm, ripe Hass avocados, halved, pitted, peeled, and cut into wedges
1. Toss shrimp, garlic, oil, and lime juice in a large baking dish. Cover, and refrigerate, turning occasionally, for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, soak 8 wooden skewers in water.
2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Thread 3 shrimp and 2 slices chorizo onto each skewer, alternating pieces. Season with salt. Grill until shrimp are opaque and chorizo is slightly softened, about 3 minutes per side.
3. Arrange avocados on a platter. Squeeze lime wedges over avocados, and season with salt and pepper. Serve with shrimp-and-chorizo skewers.
