I love avocados. I could eat them with just about anything, and probably have over the years…
Besides the rich, savory flavor, what’s really great about avocados is they’re a nutrient dense fruit with lots of unsaturated fats, so they’re really good for you.
Our stuffed avocado recipe is perfect if you’re already planning on firing up the grill to cook your favorite steak or seafood, and want a little something different on the side.
To prevent sticking and excessive carmelization, just remember to lightly brush your avocado halves with olive oil and keep an eye on them. They only need a few minutes with the fleshy side down on a grill at medium-high heat to get some nice grill marks.
The spicy, cut-up grilled shrimp is the perfect filling for the warm, creamy avocados. Spoon in the salsa, and you’ve really got a party on your plate.
Give this one a try! It’s something a little out of the ordinary for the grill master in your family to have some fun with.
