  6. Remove your shrimp from the oven.
  7. Using a cookie cutter on a plate, spoon some of the avocado mix in to the circle and gently press down, carefully slide up the cookie butter to reveal a mashed avocado round. Repeat on each plate.
  8. Place 3-4 shrimp on each avocado round, tails up. Then roll your basil leaves up like you were rolling a newspaper.
  9. Carefully slice the basil, roll thinly, creating basil chiffonade. Sprinkle over your shrimp.
  10. Serve, impress, enjoy!
