Preheat oven to 190˚C.
Butter each side of the tortillas and cut into even quarters, making 24 pieces.
Place one piece in each cup of a muffin tin and push down so it creates a cup shape. (Make 2 batches or use 2 muffin tins to make the full amount of cups).Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crisp.

In a bowl, mix together shrimp, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, cayenne, garlic, and lime juice. Keep cool while you prepare the salsa.

Assemble the cups by placing a spoonful of the avocado salsa in the toasted cup.
Now you can cook the scampi.Cook the scampi over medium high heat for 8 minutes, flipping halfway.

Place a piece of shrimp on top of the cups, followed by a dollop of sour cream.
