In a medium pot or skillet, combine white wine, lemon juice, salt and 1 cup water. Bring to a simmer.
Add shrimp to pot and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and allow the mixture to sit so the shrimp finish cooking. If using raw shrimp, they are done when brightly colored and opaque.
In a small bowl, combine onion, lemon juice, Roma tomato, cilantro, avocado, and cayenne pepper.
Stir to begin breaking down the avocado; after a few minutes mixture will become slightly creamy.
Add cooked shrimp and toss to combine. Add salt and cayenne as desired.
Fill each ½ avocado skin with shrimp cocktail mixture. Serve chilled or fresh at room temperature.
