Halve each avocado lengthwise and remove the pits. With the tip of the knife, cut through the flesh of the avocado, taking care not to pierce the skin, 4 slices each direction, this is how you dice the avocado without mashing it up. With a spoon, carefully scoop out the diced avocado into the bowl with the shrimp, repeat with all the avocados.
