Let’s have a Friday quickie! Here is a nice little recipe that you can prepare in a flash. Great for a weekend BBQ as an appetizer. Never thought I would be grilling an avocado and it was quite a revelation. The Grilled Avocado Stuffed with Salsa will be a guaranteed hit!
I found this recipe when preparing my menu for my dad’s birthday. Everything was to be made on the barbecue, even the salad…but except the dessert lol. This appetizer was a big hit with everyone.
Although you can use a prepared salsa it is much better to make a quick one on your own. I just cut up some tomatoes, a slice of jalapeno, shallots, garlic, a touch of sugar and salt, olive oil and some lemon juice. I was out of cilantro but I chopped a Kaffir Lime leaf to put in the salsa. And freshly chopped shiso leaves to finish for decoration.
Grilled Avocado Stuffed with Salsa
- 3 ripe avocados
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 limes
- 1 cup fresh salsa
- kosher salt
- cilantro chopped (optional)
- Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pits. With a finger cover the cut portion with a bit of olive oil. Squeeze half a lime over the avocados. If you are preparing them ahead of time place the avocados side down on the plate and refrigerate.
- Over a medium heat grill the avocados for 3-5 minutes, until you have a grill line.
- Spoon the avocados with some salsa, sprinkle sprinkle with the salt and cilantro (optional).
- Serve with lime wedges.
Thish is fun and delicious idea! I would love to scoop up avocado and salsa combo in a big spoon. 😀
I love avocado toast and I’m certain I would love these too!
Grilling avocados is also a great way too tiptoe around slightly underripe fruit. You have a better chance of “tenderizing” them, if you will. 🙂 Great summer recipe!
