Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

For the aioli, combine mayonnaise, orange juice, garlic, and zests; season with salt and cayenne, then refrigerate.

For the avocados, mix 2 Tbsp. oil, parsley, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, garlic powder, and pepper flakes in a bowl; add shrimp and toss to coat. Brush halved avocados with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil and juice of ½ a lime.

Grill shrimp, uncovered, until firm, 35 minutes. Grill avocados, flesh sides down, uncovered, until grill marks appear, about 5 minutes. Grill onion, uncovered, until softened, 5 minutes.

Scoop out and dice top two-thirds of flesh of each avocado, leaving bottom third in the “shell”. Dice grilled onion. Gently stir diced avocado, onion, shrimp, and tomatoes in a bowl; spoon back into avocado “shells”. Drizzle aioli over servings.


Grill avocados, flesh side down, until they are slightly softened and grill marks appear.
