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.

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!

I’d love this. Never thought about grilling an avocado before, I’d probably smush it on the grill and make a huge mess though. :(
