Combine tomatoes or tomato juice, chillies, lime zest and juice and salt in a food processor. Whizz until smooth. Cover and chill for up to 2 days until ready to serve.
To serve, mix prawns/shrimp, avocado, onion, cucumber and coriander/cilantro in a bowl. Divide between 8 tall tumblers or 12 small jars or glasses. Divide chilled tomato mixture over the top and swirl with a fork to combine. Season with pepper and serve accompanied by lime cheeks and chilli sauce so everyone can flavor up their own to taste.
