Garlicky Grilled Shrimp with Spicy Avocado Dipping Sauce

“I'm not suffering at all on the South Beach Diet. I've found many great recipes that fit into the plan. Dieting or not this is a great dish that brings the taste of the southwest to your grill. The shrimp is brushed with a garlic/olive oil puree, then dipped in an avocado sauce that lights up your palate. This is not time consuming, throw things in the food processor and send your better half out to grill. Then pick up a book and sip a pina colada....and wait for dinner.”
