6 ears corn, husked
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tomato, cubed
1 lb. ready to eat shrimp, tails removed

- Grill, turning frequently, until corn is charred and heated through, 10-12 minutes.
- Remove from grill.
- When cool, slice kernels from the cob and transfer into a large bowl.
- Can use boiled or microwaved corn, but please don’t. The grilled corn with the olive oil MAKES this dish.

- Add shrimp and diced avocado.
- Toss lightly, ensuring that the avocado dices stay intact.
- Season to taste with salt, pepper, and more lime juice, if desired.
