  1. Combine honey, lime juice (2 each), and white wine in a saucepan and reduce by half. Cool and reserve.
  2. Toast the pecan pieces until light brown and then cool. Warm the 2 oz. of oil together with the sliced shallots and garlic clove until vegetables are soft. Cool.
  3. In a blender, process all vinaigrette ingredients: Pecan, Shallot, Garlic, Oil, Lime Juice. Salt as needed. Reserve.
  4. In a hot sauté pan, place seasoned shrimp and a bit of oil in pan and cook half way. Deglaze with lime/honey reduction to finish.
  5. Place salad ingredients (except avocado) in a mixing bowl and toss with vinaigrette. Portion the salad onto 4 plates and top with shrimp. Cut the avocado in 4 pieces and place on plates (fan cut).

**Optional: A great garnish would be to flour and fry one of the thinly sliced shallots. Season and place on top of salad for crunchy texture.
