    Directions
    Make the guacamole: In a large bowl, mash avocados. Mash in garlic, salt, lime juice, tomato, onion, jalapeño, and cilantro and mix well. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld. Remove from refrigerator just before serving.
    Cook the shrimp: In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and sauté 1 to 2 minutes. Add shrimp, chile pepper or chili powder (if using), lime or lemon juice, salt, paprika, black pepper, and half of the chopped parsley. Sauté 1 minute, then stir in wine. Cook until shrimp just turn opaque (but no longer), remove from heat.
    Place shrimp on a platter and sprinkle with remaining parsley. Skewer with individual toothpicks for easy dipping in the guacamole.
