Grilled Shrimp and Fresh Avocado

Not long ago, I was at one of my favorite hiding spots in D.C.  By hiding spots, I mean the kind of restaurants that I know will be fairly empty at certain times so that I can just relax and read a book and let someone else bring me food.  Anyway, they had a special of grilled shrimp and avocado.  Simple, fresh, delicious.  Perfect for making at home.
