Southwestern Shrimp Grilled in Cornhusks

16 large dried cornhusks
2 red onions, peeled and cut into 3/8-inch slices
2 teaspoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
16 jumbo shrimp (about 1 lb), peeled and de-veined
Charred Chile Salsa (recipe below)
1 ripe Haas avocado, peeled, pitted and cut lengthwise into eighths
Cilantro sprigs for garnish
4 lime wedges for garnish

In a large bowl, cover cornhusks with boiling water, set aside until pliable, about 1 hour. Prepare grill.

Insert wooden pick horizontally through each onion slice to secure for grilling. Brush with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill onions, turning until lightly charred, about 5 minutes. Remove wooden picks.

Drain cornhusks and open flat. Overlap wide, flat ends if 2 cornhusks to make a boat-shape package. Repeat to make 8 packages. Divide onions among cornhusks and top each with shrimp and 2 tablespoons Charred Chile Salsa. Fold cornhusks edges firmly around filling and tie ends with kitchen string.

Place packages on grill. Cover and grill, without turning, until shrimp is opaque, 10 to 12 minutes. To serve, open each plate. Garnish with avocado, cilantro and lime wedges.

Serve with remaining salsa.

Makes 4 servings.
