Garlic-Chili Prawns with Tomato, Cilantro, Lime, Crushed Avocado, Grilled Baguette

This is a fun play on a classic scampi with big, bold flavors and a cool twist on the plate. The prawns are marinated and then sauted with a bit of butter. Avocado is smashed with a fork and spread on top of a warm piece of grilled baguette, and the prawns are served atop the avocado toast and dressed with the bold pan sauce.
