In Chile they are very common. Most I saw were stuffed with chicken salad. Here is a pic of one I was served in Chile with shrimp and mayo.

They are really good stuffed with ceviche.

In Mexico, we saw avocados the size of a human head! No wonder guacamole was so cheap!

When I was in London for a class many years ago, we frequently had avocado stuffed with whole prawns, with a very light creamy dressing. Yum!

My favourite way to eat avocado is mashed with salt, black pepper and a bit of lemon. Spread on hot buttered toast. You can also make a chopped crispy salad with a few chopped dill pickles and mayo. Fill the avo halves with this and top with smoked salmon and serve with crusty bread or rye.
A sandwich with crisp bacon, guacamole, salsa and a soft fried egg is great too. Sounds strange but it's great. Made it for a hangover cure one time lol!
I have a sweet avocado pie recipe if you want, different but good!

Gorgeous pictures PP !!

We live in a town that's surrounded by lemon and avocado orchards, and I've stuffed them with all kinds of concoctions too.
For a quick fix, I like to fill the hole with bottled seafood chili sauce, sprinkle on some garlic powder, a squeeze of fresh lemon, then get a spoon and have at it.

Did you know that if you leave the pit in half a cut avocado, it won't turn brown while being stored in the refrigerator? It's the same with serving Guacamole. In addition to using lemon juice, placing the pit in the middle of the Guacamole, will keep it from turning brown. I guess avocado's are stupid, they don't know when they've been cut.

One avocado is ripe so I made the shrimp salad. I'm just watching some TV, reading and waiting for the shrimp salad to get cold.

avocado, recipe

Stuffed Avocados I found a couple of the most beautiful avocados today. I also picked up a pound of frozen wild caught 91/xxx shrimp (cleaned, of course). One of my favorite dinners is a simple shrimp salad stuffed avocado. Do you stuff your avocados and if so, with what?:chef: 3 stars 1 reviews
