Set aside and let cool. Make the marinade: In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, garlic, basil, vinegar, oil, and paprika and season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, stir together tomatoes, onion, avocados, and basil. Fold in shrimp. Pour marinade over shrimp salad and toss until coated. Store shrimp salad in the fridge in a resealable container.

The texture is the key for the perfect Guacamole. You want slightly chunky avocado and finely chopped onion, cilantro and jalapeño. simply scoop the avocado flesh into your bowl with a spoon. Do not dice the avocado to mash as the slippery diced devils tend to slip away.
Just that, over 2 teaspoons lime juice per mashed avocado is the perfect ratio for flavour and browning prevention. Add 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander, which offers a little je ne sais quoi and ups the irresistibility factor.
