Lime Vinaigrette Shrimp w/ Pineapple and Avocado

As you all know, I am a seafood junkie. I love seafood and try to make it as often as possible. I made this a couple months ago and can't wait to make it again. It's so good and has such great textures. The lime shrimp sits on a bed of avocado and pineapple. The tartness of the vinaigrette sauce blends great with the sweetness of the pineapple.

For the Vinaigrette:1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp lime zest. minced
Salt to taste

For the Shrimp:
16 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tsp coarse, black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil
8 slices fresh pineapple
2 avocados, pitted, peeled and cut into chunks

Whisk all ingredients for the vinegarette together in a bowl. Set aside.
Toss shrimp with pepper, paprika, salt and cayenne.
Heat oil in a large skillet on high. Add shrimp and cook until brown on one side, about 1 minute. Turn shrimp, saute another 30 seconds. Add 2 Tbsp vinegarette sauce and cook until shrimp are cooked through.
To serve: Arrange 2 pineapple slices and some of the avocado on each serving plate. Drizzle with vinaigrette and top with 4  shrimp. Drizzle any extra vinaigrette sauce over the top of the shrimp.
