Salmon Stuffed Avocados

We all know that avocados are the best. They’re soft. They’re creamy. They’re loaded with good fat. Their pure deliciousness can enhance a wide range of dishes. But what happens when the avocado itself becomes the dish? Good things. 

There’s more than one way to stuff an avocado; these salmon stuffed avocados are just one example. It involves a deceptively simple technique that results in an impressive presentation. You simply mix up some salmon salad and stuff it into a halved avocado which you are using as a bowl.

I think it tastes pretty good. If you’re looking for a quick and delicious lunch, this is it.

Avocado Cut

Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and open them. Give the pit a good whack with your knife, and with a twisting motion, remove it.

Avocado mixed

Scoop a little bit of the flesh into a mixing bowl. Add in the canned salmon, green onion, mayo, herbs, and lemon juice. Stir to combine, but don’t over do it–you want the mix to remain a little chunky.

Fill the avocado shells with the mixture and dig in!

These were delicious!! I had no green onions, so I substituted a little red onion. I will definitely make these again.
